The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg is the first book in a Nordic mystery series as well as being the author’s debut book. While this book is not as well written as some other Nordic mysteries by the likes of Jo Nesbo, Mari Jungstedt or Henning Mankell, the story grabbed my attention and I enjoyed the read. Set in the smaller town of Fjallbacka that was originally a fishing town and has become a tourist town, the main characters are an author who has been specializing in biographies and a police detective.

Erica Falck has returned to her home town due to the death of her parents. She is enjoying the peace and quiet and has been working on her latest biography, when she becomes involved in the discovery of a childhood friend’s body. It is soon made clear that this was a murder and Erica wants to not only get to the bottom of the mystery of what happened to her friend, but also can see a book about this mystery in her future. Police Detective Patrick Hedstrom, is also a childhood friend and he is excited to be able to rekindle their relationship.

Although I thought the police procedures were rather lacklustre, I can see a lot of possibilities for the future of this series. While this particular mystery was rather tidily wrapped up as family secrets were revealed, the author has managed to generate a number of other subplots that I am hopeful she will be exploring in the future. As a debut novel, this one kept my attention and gave me hope that future volumes will be even better. ( )

Ice Princess by Camellia Lackberg I have a lot to say about this book.
 
It is a very good story that is not told very well. I found it unconvincing as a detective story. The detectives do not seem very bright or even like detectives at all. I saw no glimpses of deductive logic, more a case of contrived stumbling over clues.Some of the characters are clichés, the fat leery head detective had no aura of truth or authenticity at all. The rich wicked widow was likewise unconvincing. The head detective was a waste of story space and the rich wicked widow was a lost opportunity as she is a key character in the story.Either I lost the timeline or the author did at least once.And what is that thing with revealing the existence of certain clues but not revealing the clues themselves?
 
For example: At least twice if not more the author has one of the main characters find a piece of paper with writing on it and thinks to themselves, words to the effect of, "this changes everything", but does not tell us the readers what those words are.
 
WTF is that? Obviously we see that these clues are ultra significant but they are not revealed until many pages later.Unless I am mistaken, I thought that the job of the author was to leave clues in plain sight and leave us to work out the significance or otherwise of them, assuming that we are sharp enough to spot them in the first place. We should get to be full participants in the unfolding tale and it is the author pitting their wits against ours. Anything less is patronising.And detail, floods of irrelevant details. When Patrik goes into the female assistant's office there is half a page of detail about the interior decor which not only adds nothing but actually detracts from the flow of the story. I don't think I am being picky either. This was a constant scenario throughout the book. I have seen this tactic used in historical novels to good effect as it builds a picture that adds texture to the main story. But here it is simply annoying.Is there anything more unsatisfying than loose ends in a story. The character of the controlling abusive brother-in-law is built up to the point where the downtrodden wife and kids eventually leave him after he breaks his daughter's arm. But that's it. We have been lead to knowing that he doesn't stop until he gets what he wants and will stop at nothing until he gets it. The story of the murder finishes before the end of the book and I was waiting for the evil brother-in-law to rear his ugly head but no! Nothing. Nada. So what was the point of the evil brother-in-law? The sister could have just appeared for any reason. Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with dead ends in the plot to throw us off the scent but this was yet another pointless diversion that detracted As I said at the beginning of this rant it is a very good story that is not told very well and I will stand by that. This could have been a really good read. ( )

THE ICE PRINCESS: A NOVEL is written by Camilla Lackberg and translated by Steven T. Murray. This title is Book #1 of Ms. Lackberg’s Patrik Hedstrom (Fjallbacka) series.

Erica Falck returns to her hometown of Fjallbacka (Sweden) after her parents’ death in order to pack up her childhood home and contemplate the future. Erica also finds the dead body of long-ago childhood friend, Alex Wijkner, nee Carlgren. Alex is suspended in a bathtub of frozen water with her wrists slashed. Erika teams up with police detective Patrik Hedstrom to uncover very shocking events from Alex’s (and the town’s) past.
THE ICE PRINCESS is very suspensefull with a many-layered plot and interesting, tragic, characters. There are dark secrets kept hidden for decades in this seaside town; excellent writing; a very engaging couple - Patrik Hedstrom & Erica Falck; a helpful map of the town of Fjallbacka (an important character in its own right); and noir, Scandanavian noir at its finest and darkest.

The translation is excellent and I was able to find a used paperback copy through Amazon Marketplace.
A real page-turner, not to be missed. ( )

Intrigante, violento, oscuro, trepidante, y tremendamente satisfactorio de leer al tener todos los cabos atados. Es la primera novela policiaca que leo, pero ha resultado ser un punto de inflexión.
Una cosa que me pregunto una y otra vez es si realmente es cierto que consuman tantísimo café en Suecia... ( )
