Writer Erica Falck’s best childhood friend, with whom she lost touch, dies suddenly, apparently by her own hand. As Erica, in tandem with another childhood friend (and eventual love interest), local copper Patrik Hedström, look into the circumstances further, they find that the explanation is not so simple. They uncover secrets that have been hidden for decades.
The American debut of internationally bestselling Swedish writer Camilla Lackberg’s haunting first novel. Returning to her hometown of Fjallbacka after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy. The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning. Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice-cold bath, it seems that she has taken her own life.
Erica conceives a book about the beautiful but remote Alex, one that will answer questions about their own shared past. While her interest grows into an obsession, local detective Patrik Hedstrom is following his own suspicions about the case. But it is only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about a small town with a deeply disturbing past.
