LEJONTÄMJAREN – THE ICE CHILD

By Camilla Läckberg

See no evil
It’s January in the peaceful seaside resort of Fjällbacka. A semi-naked girl wanders through the woods in freezing cold weather. When she finally reaches the road, a car comes out of nowhere. It doesn’t manage to stop.

Hear no evil
The victim, a girl who went missing four months ago, has been subjected to unimaginably brutal treatment – and Detective Patrik Hedström suspects this is just the start.

Speak no evil
The police soon discover that three other girls are missing from nearby towns, but there are no fresh leads. And when Patrik’s wife stumbles across a link to an old murder case, the detective is forced to see his investigation in a whole new light.

REVIEWS

”Lejontämjaren är med lätthet Camilla Läckbergs mest ambitiösa och bästa kriminalroman hittills … Läckberg lägger snabbt och effektivt ut spelbrickorna. … Tempot och våldet stegras stadigt.”
Göteborgs-Posten

“… creepy serial killers, spooky interiors and a parallel plot in the past, filled with dark secrets… Camilla Läckberg has a remarkable gift for storytelling for which she is seldom praised.
Dagens Nyheter

“.. a splendid crime novel”
Borås Tidning
