The Stonecutter

A Novel
Borrow Borrow

In the third novel from the bestselling female writer in Sweden—and for the first time in English—the mysterious drowning of a little girl threatens to tear apart the town of Fjällbacka

The remote resort town of Fjällbacka has seen its share of tragedy, though perhaps none worse than that of the young girl found in a fisherman's net. But this was no accidental drowning . . .

Local detective Patrik Hedstrom has just become a father. It's his grim task to discover who could be behind the murder of a child both he and his partner Erica knew well. What he does not know is how this case will reach into the dark heart of Fjällbacka, spanning generations, ripping aside its idyllic façade, perhaps forever.

"Picking who will be the next Stieg Larsson has become something of a game. Henning Mankell has been mentioned, along with Jo Nesbø, but for my money, the best choice is Camilla Läckberg. The Preacher can go up against the Larsson books head-on." —Dennis Drabelle, The Washington Post

"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

"The hottest crime genre of the moment is Nordic noir and Camilla Läckberg is one of the reasons. Darker, bleaker, and far more sinister than similar American fare." —USA Today

Camilla Läckberg worked as an economist in Stockholm until a course in creative writing triggered a drastic career change. Her novels have all been #1 bestsellers in Sweden, and she is the most profitable native author in Swedish history. She was a #6 bestseller in Europe in 2009 and her novels have been sold in 35 countries. Her previous novels are The Ice Princess and The Preacher. Camilla lives in a suburb of Stockholm with her husband and five children.
