    I felt that Lackberg walked a fine line with this one By putting Patrik at home instead of at the police station she made the bookdomestic than crime On the other hand she turned Erica into a temporary sleuth and successfully ran two separate mysteries until they became one It worked for me.As with all good series I have an attachment by now to all of the main characters and it is good to see them changing and developing Anna in particular has made huge progress and I loved the moment I felt that Lackberg walked a fine line with this one By putting Patrik at home instead of at the police station she made the bookdomestic than crime On the other hand she turned Erica into a temporary sleuth and successfully ran two separate mysteries until they became one It worked for me.As with all good series I have an attachment by now to all of the main characters and it is good to see them changing and developing Anna in particular has made huge progress and I loved the moment where she suddenly decided she had had enough Of course the biggest development is Mellburg the power of a new dog and a good woman I hope his future is as good as it seems at the moment All good and I am looking forward to book 6

    The Hidden Child is easily the strongest entry in L ckberg s canon to date, and this is largely attributable to the fact that in this novel she has a masterful handle on just about all of her characters Erica is not sidelined for the first time since The Ice Princess, and Mellberg, now that we ve accepted that he doesn t do any actual work, is clearly being groomed into a lovably reformed middle aged man in his sixties First you throw him a dog, and the rest will follow The crime here is fa The Hidden Child is easily the strongest entry in L ckberg s canon to date, and this is largely attributable to the fact that in this novel she has a masterful handle on just about all of her characters Erica is not sidelined for the first time since The Ice Princess, and Mellberg, now that we ve accepted that he doesn t do any actual work, is clearly being groomed into a lovably reformed middle aged man in his sixties First you throw him a dog, and the rest will follow The crime here is fairly simple, but the reasoning behind it and the expertly tied parallel story, the strongest L ckberg has ever written is compelling and the cast of suspects and loved ones are well realised There are times when it seems like sentiment is being slathered over the page, but this is the sort of emotional response that isthan forgivable five books into a series it s practically expected The Hidden Child is a successful novel because it is intelligent, interesting, and at least a little melancholy If you d given up on this series after the excesses of The Gallows Bird The Stranger, you might want to reconsider This is very good small town crime fiction indeed

    I m not really sure why I m still reading these, but I guess they re predictably enjoyable I m always really into the mysteries, and you pretty much know it s going to unfold really slowly.Still, they are uncomfortably sexist sometimes, even though Lackberg seems to be making an effort to sort of drag that discussion into her story But, like, Patrik will do things like go on an accidental two hour errand run, while leaving the baby with Erica even though she s now working and he s on paternity I m not really sure why I m still reading these, but I guess they re predictably enjoyable I m always really into the mysteries, and you pretty much know it s going to unfold really slowly.Still, they are uncomfortably sexist sometimes, even though Lackberg seems to be making an effort to sort of drag that discussion into her story But, like, Patrik will do things like go on an accidental two hour errand run, while leaving the baby with Erica even though she s now working and he s on paternity leave, and then Erica will be pissed at himbut then it s fine Like, he doesn t really get it And eventually she s like, Oh, I overreacted Um, excuse me, you didn t overreact you had a totally normal reaction of a person who is entitled to do work like a human without your husband who is supposed to be the main caretaker at this point suddenly giving you the kid.Lackberg sort of, maybe, wraps this up towards the end, but it still doesn t FEEL that good to me These books are feminist y with a patriarchal twist, and that s always been SUPER weird and conflicting to me I feel this way about most Scandinavian crime fiction though , but that will definitely not stop me from reading the next one

L ckberg, the international bestselling author, is back with her new Nordic noir, The Hidden Child which is the fifth book in her popular crime thriller series, Fj llbacka This book welcomes the well admired protagonist, Patrik Hedstr m, who is on a four month paternity leave for his 1 year old daughter whereas his popular crime writer wife, Erica is back to writing novels but she is distracted by sight of her mother s journals and lingering mystery behind a Nazi medal found among the belongings of her mother, soon followed by the murder of the historian whom Erica had sought help for that medal s history right before his tragic death.Synopsis Crime writer Erica Falck is shocked to discover a Nazi medal among her late mother s possessions Haunted by a childhood of neglect, she resolves to dig deep into her family s past and finally uncover the reasons why.Her inquiries lead her to the home of a retired history teacher He was among her mother s circle of friends during the Second World War but her questions are met with bizarre and evasive answers Two days later he meets a violent death Detective Patrik Hedstr m, Erica s husband, is on paternity leave but soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old Reluctantly Erica must read her mother s wartime diaries But within the pages is a painful revelation about Erica s past Could what little knowledge she has be enough to endanger her husband and newborn baby The dark past is coming to light, and no one will escape the truth of how they came to be Patrik is on leave for his daughter Maja and he can t stop himself from disturbing his wife, Erica who is back to writing novels in the very comfort of their home But on the very first day of his leave, Patrik is stumbled upon a crime scene where the dead body of an old historian has been found by his colleagues, and little did Patrik knew that Erica had sought help, not very long time ago, from the same historian about an old Nazi war medal that she found among her late mother s belongings Together Patrik and Erica embark upon a forgotten path taking them back in time through Erica s mother s journals that narrate the period when the world war II is coming to an end, in order to find the connection of her mother and her friends in Sweden in the war Eventually the history begins to unravel right in front of their eyes when the hidden secrets surface up about a young and naive couple who got caught up between love and war.The book held me from the very first chapter till the very last line of the book, although I must say, the book ended with a bang I mean literally a cliffhanger hinting to the next book in the series The book opens a bit slow and all the while it felt like there s no point of stretching such a good story for so long by withholding the secret which finally became very obvious midway through the story Anyhow, what allured me to stick to this book is the way the author narrates the whole story, bit by bit, piece by piece in a forward motion, where there were no wrong turns to mislead me into another theory of what has actually happened in Erica s mother s past.The writing style is flawless, with a captivating narrative style The prose is evocative since most of the time it brings up the past despite of the clean slate kind of situation The importance of having family is closely observed in this story thus leaving the readers with a feeling of longing for their families Moreover, the author captures the aura of the war and how war affects the bonds of the families if someone from that family becomes a prisoner of the war and how war can bring people together and they destroy those newly formed bonds, all these themes are delicately depicted into this story.The mystery doesn t play any games with the minds of readers, yet the author takes a lot of time to unravel it, by giving each and every character a proper presence in this puzzle, I mean it s like every one adds up to this mystery The atmosphere that the author sets in to this story line is thick in suspense and gives a chilling feeling while reading it and the very essence of evil, since the best part of this story is the careful postmortem of darkness underlying during the era of war.The characters are strongly developed, with lots of back story so that the readers are able to contemplate with each and every one of her characters in this book The demeanor reflected in each people of this small city in Sweden is impressive, where all the families have their own story to tell The main characters are developed with the pace of the mystery The author here simply played with the minds of the readers in her own way, thus reproducing a brilliant masterpiece And I promise, there are some characters in the book which are going to stay with you long after the end of the story.The author gives a vivid picture of Fj llbacka, where the story is set, given the fact that the descriptions in the book are very detailed and with such intricacy the plot has been laid out, that it feels like the reader is himself watching the crime scenes unfolding right in front of his eyes Moreover, the author strikingly captures the cold and the gray backdrop of yet another amazing city in the world, Fj llbacka, that comes alive with the story.Since this is the third book that I read in this series, the first being not so memorable for me, but surprisingly this book stands out in the mellow, which being a bit tedious yet maintains that old charm of being intriguing and intense both at the same time.Verdict Nordic noir at its best and Camilla knows how to device a page turning thriller with a flavor of history and a deathly murder plot

    I m generous giving this a 3 Closer to a 2.5 star because these novels Lackberg series are not as much crime or mystery genre any as they are continuing character minutia tracts The read is 40% character trivia that is basically unrelated whimsy and only on a super wide tangent from any fact or semi involved relationship that has anything to do with the plot or outcome of the mystery A run on sentence but that s what is going onandwith each progressive Lackberg novel I do I m generous giving this a 3 Closer to a 2.5 star because these novels Lackberg series are not as much crime or mystery genre any as they are continuing character minutia tracts The read is 40% character trivia that is basically unrelated whimsy and only on a super wide tangent from any fact or semi involved relationship that has anything to do with the plot or outcome of the mystery A run on sentence but that s what is going onandwith each progressive Lackberg novel I doubt I will read any The people are ok, but not all that bright and frankly, also tedious and a bit small minded, IMHO And at the same time the main 4 or 5 characters have also become pure stereotypes It has a dumbing down result that just kills any entertainment value for me

    I was an avid reader of detective novels in high school, but I haven t tried this genre for quite a while I decided to leave the classics aside and dive into unknown territories, those of the modern writers of detective fiction My first try apart from Stieg Larsson was the Scandinavian Camilla L ckberg, who turned out to be a big disappointment Another reason not to fall prey again to a good rating and a promising synopsis If you brace yourself and read this book nonetheless, be ready for I was an avid reader of detective novels in high school, but I haven t tried this genre for quite a while I decided to leave the classics aside and dive into unknown territories, those of the modern writers of detective fiction My first try apart from Stieg Larsson was the Scandinavian Camilla L ckberg, who turned out to be a big disappointment Another reason not to fall prey again to a good rating and a promising synopsis If you brace yourself and read this book nonetheless, be ready for an epidemic of pregnant women, cups of coffee at every page and hour of the day, domestic scenes that are boring as hell which I soon started to skip and a detective investigation that is diluted and just as tasteless as a watery cocktail I was indecisive between Jo Nesb , Boris Akunin and Camilla L ckberg and in the end I chose her what a waste of time I finished this 600 pages book in no time though, because I skippedthan half of it For the most part, The Hidden Child is a bad quality soap opera, with a detective story that is shredded into tiny slices interspersed with boring accounts of domestic life You could read this novel in the worst conditions imaginable and still keep track of the plot This kind of books, along with the Sandra Brown type and the most recent vampire literature, are for me an explanation for the fact that some people are still reading I don t want to offend anyone, but I m afraid that, if such easy type novels would cease to exist, the number of readers would reduce drastically Try to also read some novels that challenge your brain and teach you something Don t make this kind of books your only connection to the literature world
