Now in paperback: A string of suspicious deaths points to a potential serial killer who has turned his eye toward Fjallbacka and her dark forests, where two children vanished decades before.

A local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but it isn’t a clear-cut drunk driving case. The victim’s blood contains high alcohol levels, but she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a reality television show begins shooting in the town, and as cameras shadow the stars’ every move, tempers start to flare. When a party ends with an unpopular contestant’s murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew―could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real-life murder mystery. Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his toughest investigation yet.

About the Author:

Camilla Läckberg is an international bestselling author renowned for her brilliant contemporary psychological thrillers. Her novels have been sold to fifty-five countries around the world with translations into thirty-seven languages. She has sold over ten million copies of her novels and was one of Europe’s bestselling authors last year. Her previous books include The Drowning, The Hidden Child, The Stonecutter, and The Stranger, which are all available from Pegasus Crime. Camilla lives in Stockholm.

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
