Editorial Reviews

No. 1 international bestseller and Swedish crime sensation Camilla Lackberg's new psychological thriller - irresistible for fans of Stieg Larsson and Jo Nesbo.

On a late summer's night, a young woman jumps in her car, her hands slippery with blood on the steering wheel. Taking her five-year-old son, Nathalie flees to the only safe haven she knows: the island of Gråskär off the coast of Fjällbacka...

Meanwhile, Detective Patrik Hedström has barely stepped foot inside his office following a lengthy sick leave before he catches a murder investigation.

A man has been murdered in his home: the victim, Mats Sverin, was the council's financial director, heading up a regeneration project worth millions. But when Patrik and his team start digging into the dead man's life, all they can uncover is unanswered questions. Why was Mats in such a rush to return to his home town of Fjällbacka after years in Gothenburg? And is it pure coincidence that Mats's childhood sweetheart Nathalie has also suddenly returned to the area? Mats visited Nathalie on Gråskär before his death.

The locals call the island 'The Ghost Isle' - they say that it's haunted, and that the dead have something to tell the living. But will anyone get close enough to uncover the dark secrets that lurk there?

5.0 out of 5 stars The dead never leave the island... November 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is a Swedish island named Graskar that the locals call Ghost Isle. Anyone who dies on the island stays there, so it's said. The ghosts are friendly, almost affectionate, and would love to advise the suffering humans who live there embroiled in dangerous relationships. But their warnings are rarely heeded in time.

While all this ghostly activities are going on, the police in Fjallbacka are faced with a perplexing murder case. A nice young man of sterling character has been shot dead in his apartment. As usual, Patrik Hedstrom is leading the investigation, and his wife Erica is doing some snooping on her own. The lazy obnoxious police chief Mellberg is making stupider mistakes than ever. And false clues are further confusing the picture.

Patrik and Erica now have twin infant sons, as well as their little daughter. And Erica has new worries about her emotionally fragile sister Anna, who just lost a baby. So in addition to murders and tragedies past and present, we have plenty of family dramas.

Life in small town Fallbacka gets very lively in this book, or should I say deadly? The plot is dense with happenings. It's fun to follow the familiar characters we've met in every book. And the new faces are interesting too.

I've enjoyed all the books in this series, and they get better and better. Unfortunately, I think this may be the last book available in English translation.

This is the seventh book in the Patrik Hedstrom series by Camilla Lackberg. Swedish mysteries have a totally different feel from American and British settings. Maybe it is the geography and the food that makes them seem such a world apart. This series is so well done, and so very cleverly presented, I cannot wait for the 8th book due out next Spring (2014). I have read all seven books and think they are all excellent. They are a top rate series and well worth the effort to find all of the books. I have recommended them to all my reader friends and relative.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good read. November 7, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love all Camilla Lackbers's books! Can't wait for the next one. This one was not the most exciting out of the series, but still pretty good. I think she should start a new one with different characters.

I have given all Camilla Lackberg's Patrik Hedstrom novels "5 Star" reviews. The Lost Boy I have only given 4 stars. In "The Lost Boy" she weaves the characters as she has done in the past leaving me unable to put the book down...I just have to keep reading. The suspense as to what is going to happen keeps me wanting more. There was one situation in this book that I thought she left unfinished and I felt that this aspect of the book, though small, should have been completed. I don't want to give specifics since it would spoil it for anyone who hasn't read it yet. But maybe it was left that way to segue into her next novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars So-o-o-o good!!!!!! July 30, 2014
I am a mystery fan and she is the absolutely best. This is my sixth Camilla Lackberg book in five months. Her characters are interesting, human, fallible and you care about them. While most of the characters (core characters) appear in each book, each story is unique and she is anything but formulaic. Recommend her highly.
You will be hooked. Hope there is more Patrik/Erica novels to come. Put the last one down with a sadness.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just Can't Get Into This One April 26, 2014
By ccjs
I have read all of Lackberg's book and have anxiously awaited this one. I'm about 1/3 of the way through and for some reason it has not caught on with me. Perhaps when I read more, I will enjoy it as much as her others.

3.0 out of 5 stars predictable but a good read nonetheless
I like the psycological approach to Lackberg's books but this one I found more predictable than usual. However I don't think that it is meant to be anything else.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want to read more and more
Even if the beginning was a little confusing, because different stories, who go to the same direction, one you are in you have to go to the end. The suspens is high. Read more

The plot keeps Läckberg's standard, but the English grammar is disturbingly weak (even for a Scandinavian reader)
