En bur av guld – The Golden Cage

By Camilla Läckberg

On the surface, Faye appears to have everything. A perfect husband, a beloved daughter and a luxurious apartment in the finest part of Stockholm. But dark memories from her childhood in Fjällbacka haunt her and she feels more and more like she’s trapped in a golden cage. She was once a strong and ambitious woman, before she gave it all up for her husband Jack.  

When he deceives her, Faye’s entire world falls to pieces and she is left with nothing. She is utterly devastated, until she decides to retaliate and exact a cruel revenge..  

The Golden Cage is a fearless novel about a woman who was used and betrayed, until she takes charge of own fate. A dramatic story about deceit, redemption and revenge.


First published 11th of April 2019.


Golden Cage […] keeps up a high tempo all the way through and is carried by a controlled, well-articulated rage over the state of things, over the doomed love that fells us all, and the helpless women who stay in their cages, refusing to see the contempt of their husbands. This is a style that suits Camilla Läckberg to a T, in a genre that has left the disdain behind.
Lotta Olsson, Dagens Nyheter

The latest Camilla Läckberg is more driven and contemporary […] The entertainment value is great, the final twist extremely striking.

Golden Cage is an entertaining page-turner that aims at really thrilling revenge drama.
Skånska Dagbladet

Camilla Läckberg leaves Fjällbacka and enters the glamorous environment in Stockholm. In a smart thriller she portrays the degradation on an everyday level – and someone who finally strikes back. The culture writer Inger Melin is affected… Skillfully written and gruesomely comprehensible, like Agnes Lidbeck’s ‘Supporting Act’ (Finna sig) but set in a millionaire setting… It’s an updated ‘The Life and Loves of a She-Devil’… It’s very readable, driven. Camilla Läckberg has always been superb at creating redoubled excitement by telling the story in several timetables. 

Topical, sharp and elegant… It’s believable and the story is skillfully told… When I get to the thrilling and magnificent ending I shudder.

An extremely satisfying thriller from the ever-compelling Camilla Läckberg, The Golden Cage begins with an anxious housewife trapped in a loveless marriage that she’s determined to hold together, and soon evolves into one of the most twisted and triumphant revenge thrillers I’ve ever come across.

In The Golden Cage, the newest thriller from Camilla Läckberg, trophy wife Faye […] takes revenge on her rich adulterous in a genius way.
De Telegraaf

Perfectly realistic, breathtaking and feminist, the new novel from the Scandinavian queen of crime is a total success.

An explosive cocktail of intelligence, cruelty and willpower, all sprinkled with a good dose of feminism. A pure delight!
Florence Dalmas, Le Dauphiné Libéré/ Vaucluse Matin

A very intelligent psycho-thriller with a twist – and a brilliant ending which you would never expect.
