Staff Reviews


Not one but two Camilla Läckberg releases this summer? (The Hidden Child is brand new in hardcover and The Stranger is now in paperback.) My nerves can’t take it. Her creepy Scandinavian crime writing is incredibly suspenseful and atmospheric and her knack for portraying everyday evil is quite disturbing. I recommend reading these with the lights on.

Description


Crime writer Erica Falck is shocked to discover a Nazi medal among boxes in her late mother’s attic. Haunted by a childhood of neglect, she resolves to dig into her family’s past to finally uncover the reasons why.

Her inquiries lead her to the home of a retired history teacher who had been among her mother’s circle of friends during the Second World War, but her questions there are met with bizarre and evasive replies. Two days later the man is brutally murdered in a house he shared with his brother, a Nazi war criminal investigator with the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Detective Patrik Hedström, Erica’s husband, on paternity leave with their newborn child, soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation. Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old? The answers may lie in Erica’s mother’s wartime diaries, but can they find them before dark secrets from over sixty years ago surface to destroy them all?

Praise For…


“Once again Läckberg has written an exciting, fast-paced mystery. . . . [The] secondary plot is just as intriguing as the main story line. . . . Recommended for the author’s fans as well as lovers of Scandinavian mysteries.”
      —Library Journal



“Excellent fifth novel. . . . [Läckberg] skillfully shows how the past has influenced recent events.”
      —Publishers Weekly [HC starred review]



“An engaging tale that spans three generations of Fjällbackians. . . . The Hidden Child will keep fans of Swedish crime guessing until the final pages.”
      —Booklkist



“Lesser narrators might be challenged by meshing two eras and an enormous cast of characters. However, Simon Vance’s transitions are smooth, and his narration fluid despite myriad emotions and the author’s complicated plot. . . . Vance enhances the story’s comic relief, parenting struggles, and culture clashes through outstanding characterizations, all the while reflecting the building tension.”
      —AudioFile [Earphones Award Winner]



“Fans of Nordic noir will appreciate this taut, twisty mystery enriched with historical detail.”
      —Kirkus Reviews



“An intricate, layered, and often subtle novel.”
      —Mystery Scene
