Hur mycket vet vi egentligen om våra föräldrar? Vilka hemligheter i det förflutna kan förklara handlingar i nuet? Dessa frågor tvingas Erica brottas med när hon inser att hennes döda mor under andra världskriget umgicks i samma krets som den äldre man som hittas mördad i sitt hem i Fjällbacka.

Trots att Erica egentligen borde skriva på sitt nya bokmanus kan hon inte låta b

Ωραία έναρξη, στην πορεία το βιβλίο γίνεται λίγο υποτονικό όμως το κλείσιμο της ιστορίας είναι υπέροχο, δυνατό και με ένταση.

The Hidden Child is easily the strongest entry in Läckberg's canon to date, and this is largely attributable to the fact that in this novel she has a masterful handle on just about all of her characters. Erica is not sidelined for the first time since The Ice Princess, and Mellberg, now that we've accepted that he doesn't do any actual work, is clearly being groomed into a lovably reformed "middle aged" man in his sixties. First you throw him a dog, and the rest will follow.

Camilla Läckberg, the international bestselling author, is back with her new Nordic noir, The Hidden Child which is the fifth book in her popular crime thriller series, Fjällbacka. This book welcomes the well admired protagonist, Patrik Hedström, who is on a four month paternity leave for his 1 year old daughter whereas his popular crime writer wife, Erica is back to writing novels bu

I'm not really sure why I'm still reading these, but I guess they're predictably enjoyable? I'm always really into the mysteries, and you pretty much know it's going to unfold really slowly.

Still, they are uncomfortably sexist sometimes, even though Lackberg seems to be making an effort to sort of drag that discussion into her story. But, like, Patrik will do things like go on an accidental two-hour errand run, while leaving the baby with Erica even though she's now working and he's on paternity

In Fjällbacka, Sweden two teens break into the house of Erik Frankel, an elderly man who collects Nazi memorabilia. They're shocked to discover his badly decomposed body. Coincidentally true crime writer Erica Falck, looking through belongings of her deceased mother, Elsy, finds some diaries and a Nazi medal. Thus starts a dual investigation - the police look into Erik's death and Erica searches for information about her mother.

The story alternates between the present-day and the 1940s (during

I'm generous giving this a 3. Closer to a 2.5 star because these novels (Lackberg series) are not as much crime or mystery genre anymore as they are continuing character minutia tracts. The read is 40% character trivia that is basically unrelated whimsy and only on a super wide tangent from any fact or semi-involved relationship that has anything to do with the plot or outcome of the "mystery". A run on sentence but that's what is going on more and more with each progressive Lackberg novel. I do ...more

Βαθμολογία: ★★★★

Το πέμπτο βιβλίο της σειράς μου φάνηκε και το καλύτερο μέχρι στιγμής. Η υπόθεση έχει μια πιο προσωπική διάσταση, αφού εμπλέκεται άμεσα η μητέρα της πρωταγωνίστριας. Τα κεφάλαια που διαδραματίζονται στη διάρκεια του Β' Παγκόσμιου μου φάνηκαν ιδιαίτερα ενδιαφέροντα, παρόλο που είναι φτωχά σε ιστορικά στοιχεία. Μια λεπτομέρεια που μου άρεσε πολύ είναι ότι η συγγραφέας ρίχνει εδώ τους σπόρους για το επόμενο βιβλίο, αφού μας συστήνει τον Κρίστιαν και το βιβλίο που γράφει («Η γοργόνα»)

Amazing book!

Another favourite from Camilla Lackberg! I just cannot get enough of her writing! Her thrillers are right up my alley! This one includes flashbacks from the dark days of WW2 which is another reason why I loved it! I think this one along with The stonecutter are my 2 favourites! Don't miss it!

Αφού σε κάποια στιγμή ο ίδιος ο Μέλμπεργκ (απολαυστικότατος σε αυτό το βιβλίο) αναρωτιέται τι έχουν πάθει οι κάτοικοι της Φιελμπάκα και σκοτώνουν ο ένας τον άλλο!!!

Het duurde lang voordat ik echt in het verhaal zat. Veel langer dan bij de voorgaande delen. Daarom heb ik het boek drie sterren gegeven. Als het boek me vanaf het begin meer had gegrepen, had ik het vier sterren gegeven. Want het verhaal van Erica’s moeder is erg interessant en verklaart een hoop. Daarom is het wel een belangrijk boek in de serie. Ondanks dat dit boek me iets tegenviel, ben ik toch wel benieuwd naar het volgende deel. Al ga ik nu eerst wat anders lezen.

I was an avid reader of detective novels in high school, but I haven't tried this genre for quite a while. I decided to leave the classics aside and dive into unknown territories, those of the modern writers of detective fiction. My first try (apart from Stieg Larsson) was the Scandinavian Camilla Läckberg, who turned out to be a big disappointment. Another reason not to fall prey again to a good rating and a promising synopsis.

If you brace yourself and read this book nonetheless, be ready for

If you haven't discovered Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg yet, you are in for a treat. Her first three books, in order are:

The Stonecutter
The Preacher
Gallow's Bird

Had I known, I would have begun with the trilogy in order, but the first book I happened upon was Gallow's Bird, then I found The Ice Princess, her fourth. Both have recurring characters and it doesn't really matter what order you read them in as the crimes/mysteries stand on their own. The crimes are intriguing and original a

Gosto imenso da escrita da Camilla.
Este livro é grande e isso assusta-me logo pois livros longos tendem a aborrecer-me.
Não foi o caso, gostei muito mesmo, a pontuação justa seriam as 4,5*, mas recaiu para as 5* por não me ter custado a ler em momento nenhum.
Adorei ler a história da mãe da Erica, e da nova faceta de Patrick.
Adorei os pormenores históricos, coisa que habitualmente nem aprecio.
Aconselho, sem reservas.

I was disappointed in this book right from the first chapter when the author had a one year old more advanced than she should have been. On page 80 the author had the medical examiner explain that Erik had been killed by a right handed person standing in front of him who hit him on the right temple. Later in the book, the killer stated that he had dropped the stone bust on the top of Erik’s head.

The reactions of her characters were often in excess of the circumstances. The plot was predictable

Το βιβλίο έχει δυο συνδεόμενες πλοκές, από τη μια η ιστορία των φόνων που διαδραματίζονται στο παρόν και από την άλλη η ιστορία του παρελθόντος το 1943-45. Η υπόθεση είναι ενδιαφέρουσα, και διαβάζεται εύκολα. Όπως συνηθίζουν οι Σκανδιναβοί συγγραφείς αστυνομικών μυθιστορημάτων έτσι και η Lackberg θίγει, επιδερμικά μεν αλλά τα θίγει, κοινωνικά θέματα όπως αυτά του νεοναζισμού και του ομοφυλόφυλου ζευγαριού γυναικών που περιμένει παιδί από σπέρμα που πήρε από τράπεζα.

Lord, I'm still stuck in Sweden. Best Patrik Hedstrom book yet in the series for so many reasons. Will write full review tomorrow. I have to decide if I should stay in Fjallbacka or not. I'm afraid if I leave I won't return for a while and there are only a couple of books left in this series. I might have to stay....

Erica’s mother has died, and when going through her mother’s possessions, she’s shocked to discover a Nazi medal. She goes to the home of a retired history professor to get information about the artifact, but he’s less than helpful and rather evasive. Two days later he’s dead. And Erica’s husband, Patrik, gets involved in the investigation.

Good, mature writing, better than most Scandinavian thrillers I've read. Sound character building, the writer is compassionate towards them, and doesn't present them as black or white, good or bad. Interesting plot which involves true historical events. Enjoyable read.

Si lascia leggere. Irritanti molti degli spazi dedicati alla quotidianità familiare di Patrik ed Erica (in partucolare saremmo stati grati di avere meno notizie possibili su abitudini ed usi della piccola Maja).

Πολύ καλό βιβλίο που καταπιάνεται με μια σειρά από σημαντικά κοινωνικά θέματα... Ωραίος τρόπος γραφής που βοηθά τον αναγνώστη να καταλάβει τη σουηδική κοινωνία και ενδιαφέρουσα πλοκή! Οι χαρακτήρες εξελίσσονται και αντιμετωπίζουν καταστάσεις που τους αναγκάζουν να έρθουν αντιμέτωποι με θέματα ιδιαίτερα... Επίσης, η ιστορία προκαλεί συγκίνηση πράγμα που θεωρώ θετικό!

This was a solid 3 stars for me. There was much that I liked about this book and a few things that I didn't. I liked the author's set up in the beginning. It was engaging. I also liked the characters. They had some interesting characteristics. The policeman who was on paternity leave was great. That was new to me.

The feeling I had in the beginning with the great set up, wasn't sustained throughout. I liked the story and the characters, it was just slow for me at times. There was too much meande
