This is the second book in this series by Swedish author Camilla Läckberg. She seems to be one of those love her or hate her authors as her ratings veer between one and five stars at random! Nevertheless I enjoyed this offering as much as the first book The Ice Princess. Our main characters, Patrik and Erica, are back and this time it is Patrik's turn to take centre stage as Erica sits at home heavily pregnant during a heat wave. I felt for her! The story was excellent although I got a little lo ...more

Η υπόθεση είναι δυνατή, βασισμένη σε ένα οικογενειακό δράμα και με πολλές ανατροπές. Μεταξύ μας όμως, τις 520 σελίδες του δεν τις άξιζε. Πολύ μελάνι για το τίποτα. Περισσότερη ώρα σπατάλησε η Lackberg στις μεταφορές των αστυνομικών από το ένα μέρος στο άλλο, παρά στην ανάλυση των εγκλημάτων.

Της το συγχωρούμε γιατί είναι το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς, αλλά τα 3 αστεράκια του θα τα πάρει και θα πει και ένα τραγούδι. Καλύτερα, για όσους ενδιαφέρονται να διαβάσουν κάτι δικό της να προτιμήσουν κάτι μ

This is a solid Scandinavian crime novel,which weaves together scenes of domesticity and scenes of horror, in a social democratic context that manages to have its fair share of religious fanatics. I would have rated it higher, but I felt that the use of the "omniscient" narrator sometimes got in the way of the story. I prefer to have everything necessary to the final understanding of the plot emerge from the story, rather than have the omniscient narrator come up with a lot of extra, missing mat ...more

The Preacher starts with a six-year-old boy finds the body of a woman. Underneath it there are two skeletons, presumingly belonging to two young women who disappeared twenty years before. Evil has returned to Fjällbacka (maybe it has never left) and Detective Patrik Hedström leads the investigation to find out who the perpetrator is. Everything seems to point out to the Hults, family of religious fanatics and criminals, with an ongoing feud. Then, another girl goes missing, and Patrik finds it i ...more
This is a follow up to the Ice Princess. This is really more like 3.5 stars, I marked it down from 4 stars because of the lack of Erica. This character that took center stage in the last book was relegated to the pregnant girlfriend role and I hated it. Her big story was having to deal with uninvited guests! Ridiculous! She seemed like part of the scenery. I also didn't like how Anna was relegated to a few pages, it seemed like the author just didn't know what to do with her after her big drama ...more

Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς που διαβάζω (το πρώτο δεν ήταν το πρώτο) και η εντύπωση είναι άκρως θετική. Η αφήγηση είναι καταπληκτική, ανεβάζοντας την αγωνία σε κάποιες σελίδες, ενώ σε άλλες κωμικά περιστατικά που συνέβαιναν έκαναν την κατάσταση πιο χαλαρή, περιστατικά που θα μπορούσαν να λείπουν κιόλας σύμφωνα με διάφορες κριτικές, αλλά εμένα δεν με χάλασαν (το αντίθετο μάλιστα!)

Εκτός το ότι ήταν αρκετά "σκληρό" για εμένα... θέλω να ρωτήσω, ήμουν η μοναδική που μπερδεύτηκα με τόσα πρόσωπα; Έκανα πολύ κόπο και διάβασα πολλές σελίδες μέχρι να καταφέρω να κατατοπιστώ με τόσα ονόματα και να καταλάβω τι σχέσεις είχαν μεταξύ τους...

So we continue with our two main characters, Ericka Falck and Patrik Hedström. Now, however, Ericka is pregnant and physically unable to contribute much to the investigation. In fact, she is almost entirely sidelined. So what does she do in this book, apart from being heavily pregnant and uncomfortable in the heat? She reluctantly looks after two sets of visitors who invite themselves to the summer house. The first lot are relatives (with dreadful children) to whom she has never been close, and ...more

The bottom line: the novel's premise is interesting, but I did not enjoy the book because of the sloppy writing (a translation problem?), the unsympathetic characters, and the shame-on-you dirty writers' tricks Lackberg uses to keep readers from seeing or knowing what the characters see and know.

I wrote a much longer version of this review for my blog, but the gist remains the same. While the plot was interesting (I did read all the way through to the end), it wasn't enough to overcome how annoy

This is a crazy good creepy dark Swedish crime series.. "The Preacher" is the second in the series and for me, it was even better in some ways than the first (which I loved - "The Ice Princess"). In this novel, the focus is mostly on Patrik, the police detective, rather than his partner, Erica, the writer. Much more focus on Erica in her first novel.

Most of the action takes place with Patrik's leading an investigation into crimes of tortured and murdered young girls - two cold cases from 20+ yea

رواية رائعة
بتحكي عن جريمة قتل، بدأت بإختفاء أحد المراهقات، ثم العثور عليها مقتولة، وفي المكان اللي لقوها في، لقوا معاها هيكلين عظميين، تم قتلهم قبل أربعة وعشرين سنة
ومن هنا بتبدأ الرواية تقريبا، التحقيق في مقتل هذه الفتاة، وربط مقتلها بما حدث للهيكلين العظميين اللذان قتلا بنفس الطريقة منذ قرابة الربع قرن، وفي ظل التحقيق، في فتاة مراهقة أخرى هتختفي، وهتبدأ الشرطة تسابق الزمن عشان تلاقيها قبل ما تموت

كل الإختفاءات والجرائم مرتبطة بطريقة ما بعائلة هولت، هذه العائلة المفككة، اللي في صراع بين طرفيها

Ένα αρκετά καλό βιβλίο μυστηρίου, ατμοσφαιρικό, γεμάτο με εικασίες και αμφιβολίες. Όμως δεν είναι ένα από εκείνα τα αστυνομικά μυθιστορήματα που σου μένουν, που φτάνεις στο τέλος και μένεις άφωνος. Όχι! Όπως είπα και για τη «παγωμένη πριγκίπισσα» η συγγραφέας εστιάζει περισσότερο στις διάφορες προσωπικότητες μίας σύγχρονης επαρχιακής κοινωνίας, στις σχέσεις των ανθρώπων, τους προβληματισμούς και τις αναζητήσεις τους, τους φόβους, τα πάθη και τις ελπίδες τους.

Urgh. These books have so much potential. I am persisting, as I am sure the author must wake up at some stage and realise that potential. Until then, I just feel a bit frustrated.

I picked the twists hundreds of pages before they were revealed. The first major one particularly as there was so much clunky and heavy handed foreshadowing. I was like "I bet it's that" and 120pp later, they worked it out. I should be a Swedish policeman apparently. Crime rate would be right down. As long as everyone w

Las novelas negras nórdicas son mi debilidad porque estos escritores tienen la capacidad única de escribir crímenes retorcidos con desenlaces impactantes y con personajes psicológicamente inestables. Así es señores, cuando más retorcida es la trama más me llama la atención.
Las novelas de Camila en cambio tienen su toque creepy pero muy escondido, hasta la resolución no terminás de darte cuenta lo sutil que era. Su narrativa es muy, muy llevadera, con un ritmo constante, dinámico y cotidiano. No

The novel takes place in Sweden. Police Investigator Patrik Englund is enjoying a vacation with his very pregnant wife, Erica, when he learns that a six-year-old boy has discovered the dead body of a young girl while out playing. Beneath the young girls body are the skeletons of two more women who disappeared in 1979. Autopsies prove that all three had been slowly tortured over the course of many days before dying.
The story is told through flashbacks to 1979 (when the first 2 women were murdere

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first one, but it was still a pretty solid book.

The writing was still engaging and the characters interesting, but the plot was lacking.

I don't think the situation with The Preacher and the Hult cult was taken to it's true potential. We barely knew the Hults, except that there was some serious bad blood right there and that every single one of them had something to hide.

I would like to know more about what drove them to do the things they did.

Surpreendentemente melhor que a "Princesa"

Apesar da condição de Erica nesta segunda incursão por Fjällbacka, as personagens de Patrik e colegas crescem substancialmente e dão corpo à história. A somar a isto, o aparecimento de alguns familiares de Erica trazem um toque mais mundano ao livro.

"The Preacher/Gritos do Passado" é mais profundo, mais envolvente e, para mim, tem mais "sumo": crença e religião, ao contrário do vazio da Princesa de Gelo.

Não é uma obra-prima, mas é, sem dúvida, bastante m

This was an exceptionally written crime and murder mystery. The grandfather pretended to be a pastor-healer. He encouraged his grandson to be the same. Said he had a gift. Skelential remains were found from twenty years earlier and in the present day two more young women were murdered. Who was the guilty one? This was a fast paced book. The story went in many directions. I'll be reading more of Camilla Lackbergs books.

Gostei de regressar ao convívio com Erica e Patrick e
gostei do enredo, embora ache que a certa altura “empastelou” um pouco.
After years of anticipation (on my part, at least) Camilla Lackberg's first novel, The Ice Princess was finally published in the U.S. a month ago. (It's been in English translation in the UK and Canada since 2008.) I'm happy to say that the book really delivers--it reminded me a lot of Karin Fossum's Don't Look Back with its portrayal of a claustrophobic small town rife with secret scandals and tensions. In The Ice Princess, Lackberg did a great job of imbuing each character--even minor ones--wi ...more

Before I start with my review, I must inform that Prædikanten (The Preacher) is the second book written by Camilla Läckberg with the village policeman Patrik Hedström and the posh bookwriter from Stockholm Erica Falck. The first one is titled Isprinsessen (The Ice Princess) and you could find the review here.

Falck, who got knocked up by Hedström after they got together in the first book (one starts to wonder how slutty can one be? LOL Just kidding), was now moving to Fjällbacka, a small village

In the summer of 2003, in Fjällbacka, Sweden, the newly dead body of a young girl is found on top of the skeletons of two other dead girls who had been missing since 1979. Detective Patrik Hedström, who we met in Lackberg’s previous book, The Ice Princess, is called back from his vacation to take charge of the case.

Hedström now lives with Erica Falck, who is eight months pregnant with their baby. (Erica was the main character in The Ice Princess.) It is hot, and Erica is miserable, but Patrik's

"The Preacher" is Swedish author Camilla Lackberg's second police mystery mystery. I did not read the first one, and think after this book, probably will not. As I said in the past about my reviews of book and critique of authors' works is often based upon my reading preference at the time of reading it. The story is set in Fjallbacka, a Swedish coastal town and begins with a young female’s body found murdered. On further investigation her body is placed on top of the remains of two young girls ...more
