A string of suspicious deaths points to a potential serial killer who has turned his eye toward Fjällbacka and her dark forests, where two children vanished decades beforeA local woman is killed in a tragic car crash, but it isn’t a clear-cut drunk driving case. The victim’s blood contains high alcohol levels, yet she rarely drank a drop. Meanwhile, a new television series begins shooting in Fjällbacka, and as cameras shadow the stars’ every move, tempers start to flare. When a drunken party ends with an unpopular contestant’s murder, all eyes turn to the cast and crew. Could there be a murderer among them? The ratings spike as the country tunes in to a real life murder mystery. Detective Patrik Hedstrom finds himself increasingly unable to focus on the strange circumstances of the first case, but what if that holds the key to a series of other unsolved cases across Sweden? Under the unforgiving media spotlight, Patrik tackles his most challenging investigation yet.

Continuing my TBR project:
This is one the oldest selection on my TBR list - Originally added April 10, 2016.

Somehow I lost track of this series as this is Patrik Hedström 4 and I see there are now 10 in the series. Yikes! I am glad I found it in my TBR to remind me. I am definitely putting the other six on my list. Camilla Läckberg is one of my favorite crime novelists.

In an interview with bookreporter.com, Lackberg enjoys Stieg Larsson and Agatha Christie. She also recommends Michael Connelly.

I enjoy her novels. I have not read Larsson. In fact, Lackberg is my first author when it comes to Nordic Noir.

More cursing than in previous works, but twenty year old reality TV stars were minor, yet crucial, characters. Mysteries are not my favorite genre so the person I thought would be the killer turned out to be the killer, nevertheless, I was not prepared for the huge twists close to the end.

I am so happy I decided to do the #readharderchallenge. If it hadn't been for it, I would not have discovered my new favorite author. Read a book that has been translated into English.

NCNY This is why I rarely uber. The first two bullet points are too ingrained in my brain. 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa So true! Must be why I am terrified by online dating and uber, and kind of creeped out by airBNB for that matter.... 2y
riversong153 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa a friend suggested online dating to me and I just don't think I can do it 😲 2y
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @riversong153 I tried it briefly, but was never really comfortable with it. If you try it, Always meet people in a public place, and have your own transportation to and from. 😉 2y

First book I've read by Camilla Läckberg and I really enjoyed it. Enough twists and turns to keep me entertained, and I enjoyed the story from different POVS.

Reading like a fiend during all breaks on this commercial shoot, trying to finish the book before it expires tomorrow! I've had such a hard time getting into this one!

ScrappyMags Are you a makeup artist? I just read Cooking For Picasso and the main character was that profession... Lol! I saw the pic and instantly thought of it. Good book too! 3y
RachaelViolet @ScrappyMags yep! :) I'll check that book out 3y

I've been reading Scandinavian mysteries for a long time - well before Stieg Larsson came on the scene. Camilla Lackberg is one of my favorites. We have a giant map of Sweden and I enjoy figuring out where the stories take place. Maybe our next trip to Sweden will include a side trip to Lund.

RachaelViolet Have you read any of Yrsa Sigurdardottir's books? I really enjoy her work :) 3y
Pandalibrarian Yes! Love her books too :-) 3y
