Huset var ödsligt och tomt Kylan trängde in i alla vrår En tunn hinna av is hade bildats i badkaret Hon hade börjat anta en lätt blåaktig ton Han tyckte att hon såg ut som en prinsessa där hon låg En isprinsessa Golvet han satt på var iskallt men kylan bekymrade honom inte Han sträckte ut handen och rör. I had heard only good things about this book but it seems this year I m not being lucky with my readingsIn no particular order the things that bugged me the most were1 This is a murder mystery novel so there are clues the protagonists investigate to resolve it The only problem is L ckberg tells the reader the clues after everything is resolved Yes the reader is excluded from the investigation ie the fun of this kind of books2 There are blatant timeline mistakes For example check the dates when Patrik Hedstrom interrogates Dagmar Petren the old lady who made cakes Suddenly it s two weeks earlier3 I m convinced this was romance disguised as mystery I don t really need to know how Erika and Patrik made love for five times because they are on the bingo phase of their relationship Indeed I would love if I had never read bingo phase Half of the book is spent in these silly things I don t want to read about Else I would have chosen Danielle Steel4 Women I can t believe this was written by a woman Every woman in the book was completely dependent on men did everything to please some man in her life and their hardest worry was to have a fine make up in every occasion Don t expect to find a strong willed intelligent and independent woman in this book Except maybe the old Dagmar Petren5 What kind of detective is Patrik Hedstrom That was the uestion that came to mind when I read Patrik after looking for a long time to Erika always sees her perfect in every detail and finds wonderful she goes out without make up unlike her ex wife Of course Erika always has tons of make up on and half the times they see each other she s just put on the first items of clothing in her closet You could attribute that to being in love but it just seemed like Patrik was stupid 6 Of course point 5 might just be the result of L ckberg lack of talent for writing That might sound harsh but L ckberg s characters were out of her control She described everyone in a very wordy way which was pointless since the characters really weren t as she wanted them to be7 It took me forever to read And I had been hoping for a page turner

Isprinsessan

äckberg handlingen vintertid till sin hemort Fjällbacka och låter morden växa fram ur småstadsandans sämre sidor Hon tecknar ett porträtt av ett slutet samhälle där alla på gott och ont vet allt om varandra och där det yttre skenet har stor betydelse Något som under fel omständigheter kan bli ödesdige. After finishing Stieg Larsson s fabulous trilogy it is only natural for me to hunt for Swedish authors writing criminal genre novels and Camilla L ckberg happened to be the next one on the list at least in my town library s listIt is uite funny how Swedish writers tend to write their books in a batch of three as a trilogy and Isprinsessen which literally means The Ice Princess in English is the first of the three Another similarity with Larsson s book that strikes me the most is that how the writer described the main character s family relations and background so well that these information would could be related with what s coming or happening in the next book It s perhaps a way to make the main character to be personal and familiar to the readersIsprinsessen s heroine is a female writer named Erica Falck who happened to stumble upon a nasty murder in her sleepy hometown of Fj llbacka Sweden The victim is her own childhood friend Alexandra whom she lost contacted years ago when Alexandra s family moved to G teborg a rather large city in SwedenErica who usually lived her hip life in Stockholm came to Fj llbacka to take care of her parents house and properties as they recently deceased in a car accident not awhile ago Apart from that she was also trying to seek comfort by immersing herself in her childhood environment while at the same time trying to ward off her nasty and dominating her brother and her poor little sister from selling the historical houseIt was only coincidence that Alexandra was found dead and frozen in a bathtub with both wrists cut during Erica s stay in that town Alexandra s parents who refused to believe that her own pretty daughter took her life begged Erica to write a memoir about Alexandra and uninentionally provoked her to find about her deathWhat Erica found among the rubbles of her childhood memories and the town s gossips was a sheer mystery of the past It all came down to her on why Alexandra s family moved so sudden to G teborg why she broke off the childhood friendship with her and the connection with the missing millionaire s son case back in 1977 She cracked the case with the help of another childhood friend a small town policeman Patrik Hedstr m who will appear in the next two booksOverall the book was a good reading It feeds me all the suspense and thriller dose I need to find in a book especially after having read Larsson s work and the fact that she wrote well again I emphasized that even though the book was originally written in Swedish I could claim that the Danish version was close to the original considering the two languages similarities added another plus to the book However yes there is a however the mystery wasn t that enticing after it was unravelled I guess Larsson was much better in creating all the complicated situations with big uestion marks attached to every characters he put in the book rather than L ckberg But who am I to judge since this is only the first book As I read on the back jacket of the book the second book Pr dikanten won the Sweden s best criminal novel of the year in 2004 so I can say that I m very looking forward to reading the second book

De vid henne Blodet på hennes handleder hade för länge sedan stelnat Kärleken till henne hade aldrig varit starkare Han smekte hennes arm som om han smekte den själ som nu flytt kroppen Han vände sig inte om när han gick Det var inte adjö utan på återseendeI debutromanen Isprinsessan förlägger Camilla L. I m shocked The cover of this book boasts that this is an international bestseller The back of the book says Ice cold suspense from Sweden s new Agatha Christie This book was not very good Normally I d say that maybe there was something lost in translation but I don t think that s the whole problemAnd now a list of grievances1 It seemed like all the characters who were good guys were prettyhandsome And the bad guys or people you were supposed to dislike were fat and ugly There was this oversimplification that just felt lazy2 There was a subplot Erica s sister s drama that was never completed Maybe there s a seuel Even still there should have been SOME kind of mention at the end about it3 When one of the characters found a clue Erica or Patrik they would find it in a trash candrawerwhatever look at it all A ha and then move on WITHOUT TELLING THE READER WHAT THE FUCK THEY JUST FOUND This happened three times Now I m not a mystery author but I know the damn rules In fact you re probably not a mystery author either and I bet YOU could even make a guess at some of the rules yeah One of the rules is No Evil Twins unless of course the Evil Twin is made known at the beginning Another rule Only One Secret Passage This book had neither secret passages nor evil twins but it DID break the rule of When the Detective Finds a Clue He shares It With the Rest of the ClassNow look I m all for breaking rules You want to use an evil twin at the end Go for it No one will ever take you seriously again but go for it You want than one secret passage Fine It worked for Clue didn t it But I swear on a stack of Edgar Allan Poe books if your detective finds a clue and you don t tell the reader what the hell it even is until much later That s bush league That is hack That is insulting to the reader and I have no idea why this book was an international bestseller4 This book had the slowest pace of any crime fiction I ve ever read A slow pace doesn t have to be bad as long as the story characters events are compelling In this story nothing was compelling5 The love story fell flat I appreciated that there was an almost normal love story going on in the book But it didn t add anything to the book This is different from most of the Swedish crime fic and it s desolation and despair So I was rooting for the love story but it like the character studies from Grievance 1 seemed too easy and therefore came across as lazy Plus they have sex 5 times in one night just like in a boddice ripping romance novel But without all the steamy details which is fine because hey it s a mystery not erotica however when you write something like that and give no steamy details but you re all then they did it like 5 times it s like it s written by a 9th grader or something6 There was a part where something may have been lost in translation but not in a that sentence makes no sense kinda way but in a I think they left out a whole paragraph somewhere This big reveal is going on about the lady who was murdrered and her past It was very important to the story Then the detective is all I m shocked she had been pregnant before and see the problem is not in any previous part of the book was this mentioned nor was it mention in the preceeding paragraphs where i think a paragraph or two must have been left out because his declaration just made no sense nor would he have known about her previous pregnancy if he had not just heard it from the character who was telling of the murdered girl s past What a piece of shitSadly the book was slow and boring And because the clues were withheld and paragraphs of info seemed to be totally missing I have to call this a disaster Perhaps it s a much better read in it s native tongue
