Returning to her hometown after the funeral of her parents, writer Erica Falck finds a community on the brink of tragedy. The death of her childhood friend, Alex, is just the beginning. Her wrists slashed, her body frozen in an ice-cold bath, it seems like she’s taken her own life. Meanwhile, local detective Patrik Hedström is following his own suspicions about the case. It’s only when they start working together that the truth begins to emerge about a small town with a deeply disturbing past…


Overall I think I enjoyed this book but I have to admit to find it quite slow going. There’s a murder and a mystery at the heart of it, but it seems to take such a long time to make any progress at any point. It has the problem of a non-police character getting involved where they probably shouldn’t but then as a relationship was developing with one of the detectives, it kind of worked. I liked the character building and really felt part of the family of Ericka and Anna, but, yea, it just seemed to take a long time to get to the big reveal.
