Much more focus on Erica in her first novel. I would have rated it higher, but I felt that the use of the “omniscient” narrator sometimes got in the way of the story. It is said that his sons could perform miracles when they were young.

On the good side, it was good to get to know the police personnel better, camipla the editing is improved from the first book.

Harper Books, paperback,fiction, pages, bought by my good self. Underneath it there are two skeletons, presumingly belonging to two young women who disappeared twenty years before. I’m not sure if these words just flow better in Swedish, or if perhaps the translator didn’t lavish proper attention on this book.

This character that took center stage in the last book was relegated to the pregnant girlfriend role preachr I hated it. Then, another girl goes missing, and Patrik finds it i The Preacher starts with a six-year-old boy finds the body of a woman.


The second, and probably biggest, change is that our focus has completely switched from Erica to Patrik. A great detective story from the Queen of Nordic noir, translated from Swedish. This is all mixed up with the weird Hult family Thrillerreeks – Patrik Hedstrom 2.

We really don’t need a reinforcement of those details in the form of unwanted guests. First, contact the German police authorities, which he had been about to do when praecher was interrupted by the call from Tord Pedersen.

Across town, however, a six-year-old boy lxckberg a gruesome discovery that will ravage their little tourist community and catapult Patrik into the center of a terrifying murder case.

The fact that envolved a feuding family, with secrets and a heavy connection to a religious group, made everything even more interesting.

And, trust me, more secrets from a really weird and disturbed family are about to resurface. Foul play was always suspected in the disappearance twenty years ago of two young campers, but their bodies were never found.

Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Mostly because I felt that The Preacher was more focused on the aspects concerning the crimes.

Book Review of The Preacher by Camilla Lackberg at AustCrimeFiction

I can totally understand why Camilla Lackberg is the most successful author in Sweden today. It was difficult to see beyond the childbirth. There are a lot of questions that need to be answered, like who is behind the new killing? Prese anche l’elmo da cavaliere e la spada di legno, che fece oscillare felice mentre percorreva di corsa i cento metri dalla casa all’imbocco di Kungsklyftan Free Press February Length: Thursday, September 27, – The female detective on the team is subject to disrespect by some of the older men.

THE PREACHER – Camilla Läckberg

With a sigh, she lay on her back with her arms crossed over her breasts and stared at the ceiling. The suspect list is long but time is short—which of this family’s dark secrets will provide the vital clue? But the author develops him very well. Especially because his girlfriend, Erica, is pregnant with their baby.


Views Read Edit View history. The same translator also handled Stieg Larsson’s books, and I don’t remember having this problem with those books. Jun 19, Jenni Wiltz rated it did not like it. Maybe with his thumb in his mouth.

These light moments are needed as The Preacher is a very dark book. When yet another young girl disappears and panic begins to spread, Patrik leads a desperate manhunt to track down a ruthless serial killer before he strikes again.

The shocked expression on their faces and the way they froze instantly told Patrik that something unexpected had happened. Her belly arched into the air like a oreacher globe, and she tried to imagine her baby swimming inside of her in the dark. The story starts when a young boy finds the body of Tanja, a German tourist which was recently tortured and murder.

Beetje gemeen zijn de ‘tricks’ om de personages iets te weten te laten komen waardoor er een andere kijk op het verhaal komt, maar dat de lezer er nog een aantal hoofdstukken op moet wachten. All those guests showed up and Erica being such a doormat didn’t add up anything to the developmant of the plot and should have been left out.

In this novel, the focus is mostly on Patrik, the police detective, rather than his partner, Erica, the writer.
