After reading the Preacher, I went back to get the first in the series and have continued in sequence. The Swedes seem to put a lot more texture into the writing. You get to know the characters very well. No perfect superheros. Everyone has a flaw. Just like real people.
This is a series of great stories.

I have read the entire series, even the new one out in Swedish this week. To me Lackberg's writing is the equivalent of Ikea. Easy to read, but do not expect high quality. The tried and tested formula in all her books; old story combined with murder and characters relationships not really changing much.

So hard to put down, a brilliant writer, great story lines and characters that are believable and real. The writer has the ability to portray all different characters believably and with insight. Am so pleased the original Swedish was translated into English. She is now one of my favourite authors. The sort of books you stay up all night reading and can't wait to get home and pick up again!

J'ai dévoré la série de Camilla Läckberg en moins de deux mois et j'ai été incapable de m'en détacher! L'auteur arrive à insuffler beaucoup de vie dans ses romans et dans ses personnages ce qui nous donnent l'impression de les connaitre. Ils sont comme nous, ils ne sont pas parfaits et ont tous leur problèmes : chaque personnage possède un vrai caractère qui lui est propre au fil des 5 livres.
Les meurtres et les enquêtes sont superbement bien combinés avec les histoires entre les héros ce qui pe

Stick with it, book 2 and 3 much better than the first book. There are some sections that are absolutely beautifully written. I look forward to reading book 4.

The Ice Princess is one of Camilla Lackberg's earlier Erica Falck stories and was published in English in 2010. Erica is getting over the recent loss of her parents and has returned to Fjallbacka, living in the family home, and trying to get on with her writing assignments. Her childhood friend Alex is found dead in an ice cold bath with her wrists slashed, but it isn't murder. Although she and Alex hadn't maintained their early friendship Erica becomes obsessive about finding the truth behind A ...more

Having enjoyed other Nordic crime writers and having seen this author's works mentioned in many discussions, I would go ahead and try her books out, and read in succession the first 3 with no intervening others. I was not overly impressed with the characters or the stories altho the plots did improve slightly as the books progressed. There is a bit too much emphasis on the relationship, however stilted it is, between the detective and his wife, who essentially adds nothing to the plot. The third ...more

This is one of the best books I've ever read!! The cool thing about the Stonecutter is the style Camilla writes in. She skips back and forth in time between two eras. It seemed a little odd at first, but I found that I looked forward to the switch to see what was going on in that "time" period. She ties everything together brilliantly, and although you have your suspicions about who the killer is, this book delivers on twists and turns, making you constantly re-evaluate and reconsider. I loved i ...more

Very much to a pattern but a good one. Always one person in italics - the criminal. Then you have Erika's story intertwining with a crime that her partner is working on with the police. Erika is a biographer. Easy read that keeps you going.

Enjoyed the book but as another reviewer stated it is like IKEA I agree easy to read but predictable

I am reading these novels in order. Each novel has a stand alone crime, but it really helps to understand the characters' back stories. Protagonists are realistically drawn and engaging.

I've read the first 2 books and really enjoyed them. Great characters who are believable, compassionate and have a sense of humor. I would recommend them to anyone who likes mysteries.

Quickly read and quickly forgotten. The first volume is good, the second is a page-turner...the third one is rather poor.

Read The Preacher: not great. Scandinavian fascination with evil fundamentalist preachers is puzzling.

The Stonecutter was the least favorite of this series so far but I still enjoyed it. Love watching the story of Erica and Patrick develop.

Great first book in series. It did take awhile for me to get into it. I was listening & the names are Swedisb& hard to follow at first. Can't wait to get book 2.
