Quotes & Awards

  • “Rich in detail, Läckberg’s saga is a journey from present-day Sweden to WW II Germany and back again, as the travails of everyday family life intermingle with the search for a violent criminal. There’s more than one villain here, and the element of surprise is magnified within the excellently crafted plot. The characters in these pages come to life as the story progresses. Kudos to Läckberg.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

  • “Läckberg’s excellent fifth novel set in the Swedish coastal village of Fjällbacka finds Det. Patrik Hedström on paternity leave, looking after his toddler daughter, Maja, though that doesn’t stop him from taking her to a crime scene, much to the chagrin of Patrik’s wife, Erica Falck…Horrific secrets come to light as the author skillfully shows how the past has influenced recent events.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Lesser narrators might be challenged by meshing two eras and an enormous cast of characters. However, Simon Vance’s transitions are smooth, and his narration fluid despite myriad emotions and the author’s complicated plot. Vance’s accurate pronunciations make listeners comfortable in the Swedish setting, allowing easy entry into the fifth gripping mystery in Läckberg’s series…Vance enhances the story’s comic relief, parenting struggles, and culture clashes through outstanding characterizations, all the while reflecting the building tension.”


  • “Long troubled by her late mother’s coldness toward her two daughters, writer Erica Falck begins to read her mother, Elsy’s, teenage diaries…Once again, Läckberg employs Swedish history and her setting, Fjallbacka, the postcard-pretty village where Falck grew up, to craft an engaging tale that spans three generations of Fjallbackians…The Hidden Child will keep fans of Swedish crime guessing until the final pages.”


  • “Fans of Nordic noir will appreciate this taut, twisty mystery enriched with historical detail.”
