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
