Born in 1974, Camilla Lackberg graduated from Gothenburg University of Economics, before moving to Stockholm where she worked for a few years as an economist. However, a course in creative crime writing became the trigger to a drastic change of career. Her first four novels all became Swedish bestsellers. She lives in a suburb of Stockholm, with her husband Micke and her two children.
Australian praise for `The Ice Princess': 'A genuine whodunit that leaves you guessing right to the end, then throws in a few more twists in the final pages, just for good measure' Courier Mail `A Swedish murder mystery with a backdrop cold enough to make you put on a jumper... a Must Read' Daily Telegraph `Well-written, plausible crime fiction' Herald Sun Praise for `The Ice Princess': `Heart-stopping and heart-warming, The Ice Princess is a masterclass in Scandinavian crime writing' Val McDermid `Camilla Lackberg is a more than welcome addition to the growing ranks of Scandinavian crime writers translated into English. With its sharp emotional nuances and psychological insight, `The Ice Princess' builds in suspense as the author turns her clear eye on the buried secrets and contemporary relationships of a small, isolated community. I predict that Fjallbacka and its crimes and people will soon be as popular here as they are in her native Sweden' Peter Robinson
