Rated 4 out of 5 by from The preacher I enjoyed the book. Also enjoyed The Ice Princess by Lackberg. It kept me guessing and anxious to find out "who dunnit". She is a good thriller writer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I recently stumbled upon the novel 'buried angels', and have been held in the authors grasp ever since. I can not put her books down. I have started at the start of the series. I hadn't known when I started the first book that it was a whole collection. But now I am entirely glad that there's more books to read. I love the characters! Everything flows brilliantly well together, following the dramatics within each characters lives and following the initial plot of the murders makes it near impossible to put them down or even break between novels. I can never guess the ending and this is something that provides a exciting challenge - maybe I will figure it out this time! Love love love this author. I am now a groupie lol. xD

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Mystery A body is found in a cleft of some rocks on a hot summer morning and Patrik is up for the investigation if only to get out of the house. A very pregnant Erica and unwelcome house guests make the already hot summer season more uncomfortable. But when he gets to the crime scene, he finds that there are two more skeletons under the corpse. These lead to a cold case that was almost solved until the main suspect committed suicide. So is this a copy cat crime or was the suicide a hoax? Dredging into the depths of a strange family brings Patrik to one certain conclusion. Not only is he ready to take on the investigation but also the larger thing that are looming in his life - fatherhood.

Praise for 'The Preacher':'[Lackberg] is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror . a must for white-knuckle junkies' Guardian'An entertaining storyteller [who] keeps us guessing' Independent'It's worth keeping an eye on Camilla Läckberg, whose second novel, The Preacher, is a cracker . the plotting is immaculate and the villain proves to be thoroughly and inventively unpleasant' Independent'Both chilling and thrilling' The Sun'A welcome addition to the swelling ranks of Scandinavian crime writers. a good, solid read' Irish IndependentPraise for 'The Ice Princess':'Another top-class Scandinavian crime writer reaches the British market' The Times'A welcome new voice in crime fiction' Woman & Home'Has a brooding quality redolent of its barren Swedish landscapes. intriguing and not a little disturbing' Irish Times'Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes' Literary Review'Heart-stopping and heart-warming, 'The Ice Princess' is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid"Camilla Lackberg is a more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian crime writers translated into English. With its sharp emotional nuances and psychological insight, 'The Ice Princess' builds in suspense as the author turns her clear eye on the buried secrets and contemporary relationships of a small, isolated community. I predict that Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as poplular here as they are in her native Sweden" Peter Robinson
