THE PREACHER – Camilla Läckberg

She spends all her time rearranging photo albums from the days when she was a beauty queen. The immediate mystery is that the body of a young missing woman is found in a gorge in a fhe tourist area dumped off a cliff.

Beneath that body are two skeletons of young women missing from twenty-four years ago. The new body has been tortured and killed in the preeacher gruesome manner as the old bodies. A fourth woman has just gone missing.

The Preacher

The plot proceeds with a lot of focus on the personal lives of the detectives as well prracher on the family members suspected in the recent disappearances just as they were suspected twenty years ago. It helped me at first to make a genealogy chart to keep track of all the family connections.

The lead detective has a lot going on at home with his wife pregnant with their first child. The female detective on the team is subject to disrespect by some of the older men. We have a burned-out, lazy, know-it-all detective as well as an alcoholic.

We are treated to a tightly-knit, plausible and complex plot. When an exhumation of a grave is ordered preacuer DNA testing, we get three surprises fed to us one at a time as various results come in.

This tue the actual town where the author grew up. All in all, a good and enjoyable detective read. View all 6 comments. View all 4 comments. Apr 15, Phrynne rated it really liked it. She seems to be one of those love her or hate her authors as her ratings veer between one and five stars at random!

Nevertheless I enjoyed this pteacher as much as the first book The Ice Princess. Our main characters, Patrik and Erica, are back and this time it is Patrik’s turn to take centre stage as Erica sits at home heavily pregnant during a heat wave. I laciberg for her! The story was excellent although I got a little lost at times regarding who was who and what their relationships were.

There were a lot of characters and they were all related! The book also jumped around a lot from one person’s perspective to another and occasionally I was forced to read back and work things out.

This was a small price to pay though for a really entertaining story and a satisfactory conclusion to the mystery. View all 9 comments. Jun 19, Jenni Wiltz rated it did not like it. I wrote a much longer version of this review for my blogbut the gist remains the same. While the plot was interesting I did read all the way through to the endit wasn’t enough to overcome how annoy The bottom line: While the plot was interesting I did read all the way through to the endit wasn’t enough to overcome how annoyed I was by the llackberg of the book.

The writing itself relies heavily on helping verbs, adverbs, and adjectives I’m not sure if these words just flow better teh Swedish, or if perhaps the translator didn’t lavish proper attention on this book. The same translator also handled Stieg Larsson’s books, and I don’t remember having this problem with those books.

Whatever the outcome, the writing itself had me wanting to toss the book across the room. I also had a hard time sympathizing with llackberg of the characters.

I expected this to be the case with the suspects, but most of the police officers and supporting characters are equally lacking in self-awareness. Even the main characters are both pretty clueless, if well-intentioned. Any bits of insight delivered came from the narrator, not the characters. Lackberg also used a few dirty tricks to prolong the suspense.

Characters frequently open letters or receive phone calls that change everything–and they tell us that it changes everything–but the reader doesn’t get to see the letters or hear the person on the other end of the phone delivering the bombshell.

This seems unfair–if the suspense requires elements of the plot to be hidden, keep them hidden from the characters, too.

If the characters find out who’s to blame, why not let the reader know, too? Unless, of course, it’s to be sure he or she turns another 75 pages. I so want to be able to tye half star ratings. I would give The Preacher a 4. I reserve 5 stars for my most favorite, fabulous, couldn’t put it down books. This one was close preacherr not quite five.

This is the first book I read from this author and gave me the best impressions!!! I will definately read more books of Mrs Lackberg!! Dec 03, Jenn rated it liked it Shelves: This is a follow up to the Ice Princess.

This is really more like 3. This character that took center stage in the preadher book was relegated to the pregnant girlfriend role and I hated it. Her big story was having to deal with uninvited guests!

She seemed like part of the scenery.

The Preacher (novel) – Wikipedia

I also didn’t like how Anna was relegated to a few pages, it seemed like the author just didn’t know what to do with her after her big drama This is a follow up to the Ice Princess. I also didn’t like how Anna was relegated to a few pages, it seemed like the author just didn’t know what to do with her after her big drama in book one. While I am still complaining, this book could camolla been pages shorter because there was a lot tge whining about the heat and a lot of back story about the suspects that was unnecessary, we don’t have to understand or feel for them.

On the good side, it was good to get to know the police personnel better, and the editing is improved from the first book. The mystery was decent and I am hoping that Erica is back full force in the next book or it may be the last of the series for me. The Preacher starts with a six-year-old boy finds the body of a woman.

Underneath it there are two skeletons, presumingly belonging to two young women who disappeared twenty years before. Everything seems to point out to the Hults, family of religious fanatics and criminals, with an ongoing feud. 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.

Then, another girl goes missing, and Patrik finds it imperative that whoever is responsible for all these crimes is found and brought to justice. Especially because his girlfriend, Erica, is pregnant with their baby. I must say I liked this book better than The Ice Princess.

Mostly because I felt that The Preacher was more focused on the aspects concerning the crimes. There were some bits with Erica, of course, and they could be annoying. Especially since she had a great difficulty in saying ‘no’ to unexpected and unwanted guests. Erica is eight months pregnant, is suffering with heat and weight, but still has trouble kicking unpleasant guests out of her own house.

Review – The Preacher by Camilla Lackberg

Or keeping from inviting them in. But despite this “doormaty” aspect of Erica’s personality, she wasn’t as annoying as in The Ice Princess. Anna, Erica’s young sister, also features, and we get to know that she still hasn’t learned how to choose a good man for her and her kids. And from the last we cmailla about Anna, I can only predicted things will become worse.

So, basically this book isn’t as eye-rolling as the previous one, and we can focus more on what is important: And, trust me, more secrets from a really weird and disturbed family are about to resurface.
