How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 27 February 2011
Why do I have it? I do like international contemporary mysteries and this was the first book that I read by Camilla Lackberg.

Erica Falck returns to her childhood home in Sweden after her parents deaths. While there, she stumbles onto the body of her childhood best friend. It appears that Alexandra has committed suicide in a bathtub of frozen water, slashing her wrists.

Erica is bewildered: why would a beautiful woman like Alex commit suicide? Taking on Alex's parents request to write a newspaper story about their daughter, Erica joins forces with police detective Patrik Hedstrom to discover Alex's secrets. It soon turns out that some secrets can be deadly; and this one can still claim lives.

I enjoyed this mystery very much. I had never read Stieg Larsson or any other Swedish author, but Camilla Lackberg was a great author to start off with. I give this book an A+!

A+! - (96-100%)

May you read well and often
