About the Author:

Camilla Lackberg is a worldwide bestseller renowned for her brilliant contemporary psychological thrillers. Her novels have sold to 55 countries with translations into 38 languages. She has sold over 10 million copies to date and was Europe's ninth bestselling author last year.

From Booklist:

Compelling characters compensate for a lackluster plot in Läckberg’s latest thriller set in the remote Swedish village of Fjallbacka. This time around, veteran detective Patrik Hedström investigates a fatal crash involving a local shop owner. Hedström fears foul play when he learns that the victim, a teetotaler, had an astonishingly high blood-alcohol level.Turns out, a few unsolved cases over the years had similar circumstances, and Hedström considers the possibility that they are all connected. Adding to the detective’s woes is an obnoxious reality show (is there any other kind?) that has descended upon Fjallbacka. Ratings climb through the roof when one of the “surgically enhanced” contestants, nicknamed Barbie, is killed. Could there be a murderer among the cast or crew? Meanwhile, Hedström welcomes a new member to the police force, smart and comely Hanna Kruse, whose psychiatrist husband has the unsavory assignment of counseling the reality-show recruits. Fans of Läckberg (The Stonecutter, 2012), who ranks among Sweden’s most popular authors, should enjoy the eclectic collection of personalities in this latest offering. --Allison Block
