Description
When a lobster fishermen finds a little girl drowned, her death is thought to be a sad accident, until an autopsy reveals traces of fresh water combined with soap in her mouth; someone drowned the girl indoors, undressed her, and then threw her into the sea. But why—and who could be capable of such a horrible thing? Behind Fjällbacka's idyllic façade lurks another reality, with feuding neighbors, family conflicts, and child pornography rings. For Patrik Hedström, whose girlfriend Erica has just given birth to their first child, this investigation proves to be a deeply chilling one, from which he may not emerge the same man. The author of a string of wildly popular crime novels since 2002, Camilla Läckberg has become the most successful native author in Swedish history and the most popular female author in Europe, with books translated in 35 languages—including outstanding English translations by award-winning husband and wife Steven T. Murray and Tiina Nunnally. Through the cases of police detective Patrik Hedström and his family life with his partner Erika Falck, Läckberg probes the darkest corners and deepest secrets of her coastal hometown Fjällbacka.

"The main narrative is cleverly interspersed with flashbacks from the past, the relevance of which becomes apparent as the novel progresses. Läckberg is particularly good at portraying the claustrophobia of a small community in which everyone knows everyone else and the police may well be friends with killers."—Independent (London)
