It could be that small-town mentality breeds fundamentalism or that burying trauma won’t make it go away, but will only grow and fester and result in tragedy, or that injustice leads to more injustice. Camilla all 7 questions about La princesa de hielo…. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I had heard only good things about this book, but it seems this year I’m not being lucky with my readings.
In no particular prinesa, the things that bugged me the most were: This is a murder mystery novel, so there are clues the protagonists investigate to resolve it. Yes, the reader is excluded from the investigation, i.
There are blatant timeline mistakes. For example, check I had heard only good things about this book, but it seems this year I’m not being lucky with my readings. For example, check the dates when Patrik Hedstrom interrogates Dagmar Petren the old lady who made cakes. Suddenly, it’s two weeks earlier. 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.
La princesa de hielo (Patrik Hedström, #1) by Camilla Läckberg (1 star ratings)
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 Steel! 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 Petren. 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.
She described everyone in a very wordy way which was pointless, since the characters really weren’t as she wanted them to be. It took me forever to read! And I had been hoping for a page-turner.

The adopted one sets fires and commits fratricide before the age of The murder victim is one of the most beautiful women who has ever walked the earth, and she’s not only secretly pregnant, but had been secretly pregnant before and is that her earlier spawn lurking around her parents’ house, sulking, perhaps?
The focus of action shifts without explanation from the first main character a decently sketch-out Brigit Jones-like woman to a second main character a decently sketched-out young detective, who has always been in love with the first main character. Several times at the end of a chapter, one of these folks finds a Clue, reads it, is surprised, and puts it in their pocket without sharing with the reader.
The detective is credited as being very clever for finding the impression of a note that’s been torn off a pad yeah, good going, Sherlock. The author conveniently finds a will crumpled up in the evil family’s trash can what, shredders haven’t made it to Sweden yet? All the participants in an earlier murder conveniently keep little bookmarks inscribed with the initials of their childhood “gang” name in plain sight for the author and detective to find.
La princesa de hielo
At some point, I decided to keep reading only to see lacmberg fresh stereotype or abomination waited on the next page. On top of all the bad characterizations and dopey plotting, bad writing abounds.
You can’t blame the translation, because the guy translates Henning Mankell, and Mankell’s gorgeous writing comes through in English just fine. The only pluses were the two surprisingly likable and 3-dimensional main lackbdrg, and the vivid setting off- season at a seaside resort town. Plus a lot of careful, interesting and varying descriptions of the coffee people brewed. If the author could write a mystery the way she writes about coffee, this might have been a decent book.

There was this oversimplification that just felt lazy. Even still, there should have been SOME kind of mention at the end about it. This happened three times. Only One Secret Passage.
You want to use an evil twin at the end? No one will ever take you seriously again, but go for it. Lakcberg want more than one secret passage? That is insulting to the reader and I have no idea why this book was an international bestseller. In this story nothing was compelling. The love story fell flat.
I appreciated that there was an almost normal love story going on in the book. 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. It was very important to the story. What a piece of shit. Sadly, the book was slow and boring. And because the clues were withheld and paragraphs of pruncesa seemed to be totally missing, I have to call this a disaster.

I love some really terrible books and I am not ashamed of it and neither should you. Nevertheless, I want to talk a bit about why this book just did not work for me.

When I suggested this book as a read for my Read Around the World Bookclub it was on the basis of the marketing for this book as a “hard-hitting Scandi-crime novel that explores the difference in Swedish society between rich and poor, small town Sweden I prepared myself to be scared and freaked out by the descriptions of horror that humans inflict on each other.
Instead, I read a book that claims to be a hard-boiled crime df, but in fact it is a cozy mystery pretending that it is not a cozy mystery.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I do love a cozy mystery now and then. They are honest about what they are, reading one, I expect outragous storylines, crazy people, over description of everything and outlandish crimes with weird motives.
And here is my main problem with the book, it’s just not honest what it is about. It is cozy set in a Swedish backwater with a bit of romance thrown into the mix. I found the writing to be terrible and I don’t think it’s a translation error, Lackerg is a princfsa respected translater of Swedish. The portrayal of each woman being dependent on a man or the opinion of a man or the action of a man was a throwback to the ies.
Erica’s obsession with Weight Watchers, her thoughts on urinary tract infections or analysing her weight and her eating all the time, was at first amusing towards the end downright annoying. Laeckberg is so judgey of women’s appearances. They are either too skinny or too fat.
