Two days later the man is brutally murdered in a house he shared with his brother, a Nazi war criminal investigator with the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Detective Patrik Hedstrm, Erica's husband, on paternity leave with their newborn child, soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation. Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old?

Review:

“Once again Läckberg has written an exciting, fast-paced mystery. . . . [The] secondary plot is just as intriguing as the main story line. . . . Recommended for the author’s fans as well as lovers of Scandinavian mysteries.”
      —Library Journal

(Booklist)

“Excellent fifth novel. . . . [Läckberg] skillfully shows how the past has influenced recent events.”
      —Publishers Weekly [HC starred review]

(AudioFile)

“An engaging tale that spans three generations of Fjällbackians. . . . The Hidden Child will keep fans of Swedish crime guessing until the final pages.”
      —Booklkist

(Kirkus Reviews)

“Lesser narrators might be challenged by meshing two eras and an enormous cast of characters. However, Simon Vance’s transitions are smooth, and his narration fluid despite myriad emotions and the author’s complicated plot. . . . Vance enhances the story’s comic relief, parenting struggles, and culture clashes through outstanding characterizations, all the while reflecting the building tension.”
      —AudioFile [Earphones Award Winner]

(Mystery Scene)

“Fans of Nordic noir will appreciate this taut, twisty mystery enriched with historical detail.”
      —Kirkus Reviews



“An intricate, layered, and often subtle novel.”
      —Mystery Scene
