The First Lady of Crime is back with Häxan!
Nordin Agency are thrilled to announce that Camilla Läckberg’s new novel Häxan is available in all Swedish bookstores today!
Three years have passed since she last published the wildly popular Lejontämjaren. Now she’s back with Häxan, not only her most expansive novel yet, but a more frightening tale than she’s ever told before.
When the four-year old Linnea disappears from a farm outside of Fjällbacka, it brings back tragic memories. Thirty years earlier a little girl disappeared from the exact same farm and was later found murdered. At the time, two thirteen-year-old girls were accused of abducting and killing the girl. They were found guilty in court, but avoided prison because of their age. One of them has since been living a quiet life in Fjällbacka. The other, now a celebrated actress, has just returned for the first time since the event, playing the role of Ingrid Bergman in a film that is to be recorded in the area.
The Fjällbacka residents organize the extensive search for Linnea, and finally find her, naked, next to the same pond where the first girl was found. Fear starts spreading in the small community. Could more girls to be in danger?
Although Patrik Hedstrom believes the truth is always more straight forward than the rumours and speculation, he and his colleagues at Tanumshede police investigate the connection between the two cases. They get help from Erica Falck, who has long been working on a book about the old murder. The investigation reopens many old wounds and the residents’ fear of the unknown results in terrible consequences.
Häxan is the tenth book in Camilla Läckberg’s phenomenally popular Fjällbacka-series. Her books are published in 60 countries and have sold 20 million copies.
In order to highlight this milestone, the tenth title in the series, Camilla wanted to give Häxan a new design and relaunch her backlist with a new, modern approach.
Camilla continuously gives us the most frightening, fascinating crime stories and is still, after ten successful novels, Sweden’s undisputed First Lady of Crime Fiction.
