Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Long troubled by her late mother’s coldness toward her two daughters, writer Erica Falck begins to read her mother, Elsy’s, teenage diaries. She also discovers a Nazi war medal with the diaries and asks a retired history teacher to examine it. Within days, the teacher is bludgeoned to death. Then Britta, Elsy’s closest friend as a teenager, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s, is also murdered. Through the diaries, Erica intuits that the solution to the mystery is rooted in events that took place during WWII. Once again, Läckberg (The Stonecutter, 2012) employs Swedish history and her setting, Fjallbacka, the postcard-pretty village where Falck grew up, to craft an engaging tale that spans three generations of Fjallbackians. The author goes deep into the lives of a very large cast of characters, and some crime lovers might balk at a 520-plus–page novel that is almost half family saga. But taken as a whole, The Hidden Child will keep fans of Swedish crime guessing until the final pages. --Thomas Gaughan

Review

“There should be a better word for a mystery that runs on for 500-plus pages, stuffed with multigenerational back stories for key characters and detailed subplots about the domestic affairs of the married sleuths, their friends, colleagues and former spouses. How about calling it a historical-biographical-romantic-domestic-police-procedural-crime-and-love saga? Intriguing. Lackberg has whipped up a respectable plot.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“Of all the mini-Larssons who have arrived on these shores since The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Sweden's Camilla Läckberg may be the best – more engaging than Henning Mankell, never as shrill or melodramatic as Jo Nesbo, as tight a plotter as Jussi Adler-Olsen. This is another terrific read.” (USA TODAY)

“If Camilla keeps producing mysteries as richly textured and downright breathtaking as her latest, who knows? Maybe, one day, we might be identifying Agatha Christie as ‘the British Camilla Läckberg.” (Maureen Corrigan - NPR)

“Of consistently high quality, well-plotted, carefully translated and well written. Highly recommended.” (Midwest Book Review)

“Well-plotted, carefully translated and well written. Highly recommended.” (Crimespree Magazine)

“Excellent. Horrific secrets come to light as the author skillfully shows how the past has influenced recent events.” (Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW)

“Fire and ice! Masterful suspense as compelling as secrets lying far beneath the dark sea. Läckberg is the perfect crime novelist who combines her gift for intriguingly complicated plots and a keen understanding of the ‘grotesques’ who live among us. Erotic and terrifying.” (Ann Rule, author of In The Still of the Night)

“One of those mysteries that ruin a vacation. Take it to the beach and your eyes will be so locked on its pages, you’ll never even know there’s an ocean in front of you.” (The Washington Post)

“Eerie. Läckberg will keep you guessing.” (People Magazine)

“What could be darker than Nordic crime fiction? Nordic noir with Nazi war criminals!… You might want to think twice about reading this at home alone at night.” (New York Post)
