Praise for Camilla Lackberg: 'Mesmerising ... It's Lackberg's particular skill to have created two of the most fully rounded characters in contemporary crime fiction, with a warmth that cuts right through the Nordic chill' Independent 'Lackberg is an expert at mixing scenes of domestic cosiness with blood-curdling horror... a must for white-knuckle junkies' Guardian 'Lackberg 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' The Times 'Camilla Lackberg is probably the hottest female writer in Sweden at the moment... Lackberg's job is to make the reader pleasurably uncomfortable - one of her ironclad skills' Barry Forshaw, Independent 'Chilly, deceptive and lucid, just like the icy environment it describes' Literary Review 'Both chilling and thrilling' Sun 'Heart-stopping and heart-warming, The Ice Princess is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid

I wondered in the beginning if it was going to be confusing as there are numerous character introductions and then trying to remember some of the names as they are not common names. Also I found I was mixing up some characters at first. So I made a list of them and then I had no trouble keeping track.
Once I got a handle on the names the book just flows and its hugely entertaining. It was hard to put down on some nights when I had to go to bed and stop reading. This book was a very good mysterious mystery, with some good twists and in depth psycho analysis, and a bit of creepiness added in as well. I also really enjoy her two main characters Erica and Patrick. Will definitely read her next book.
