She was just so bloody dull.
La princesa de hielo (Patrik Hedström, #1) by Camilla Läckberg (1 star ratings)
I cared, however, because as I predicted that it would feature childhood abuse referred to quite often as “assault” which made me livid to say the least. Laeckberg is so judgey of women’s appearances. I can be picky with books, but I rarely ever truly hate a book.

There are just so many mistakes in this books it actually made me wonder if I’d gotten a joke book when I started reading it. Chapters 1, 2 and 3. Open Preview See a Problem? Skip to main content. The author spends an entire paragraph explaining how df woman is over weight and how disgusting she finds her.
One thing that did irk me is that author does mention how some of the characters feel about their physical image quite a bit. You want more than one secret passage? You could attribute that to being in love, but it just seemed like Patrik was stupid.

But this does not in any way, shape or form, hold a candle to Larsson’s books sorry if I spelled the name wrong. By the time, the conclusion comes around, you will no longer care about who murdered the victim.
In this story nothing was compelling. I’m convinced this was romance disguised as mystery. These are in no particular order, I just typed them as I remembered them. I kept mentally correcting the sentences I read, I want to give up on this book so badly, but I feel guilty about stopping halfway through. Further add the unnecessary tangents – the sister angle, Perlina and the giddy, school girl romance where it’s important to let the reader know that Erica and Patrik make love 5 times in one night and you have all the makings of a painful read.
Disappointed due to the fact that I had high expectations. This book promised to be a gruesome murder mystery which is not my genre but it was the book club pick for this month so I decided to give it a shot. I always go into mystery novels knowing that they might be a little cheesy; heck I love cheesy mystery novels like Amelia Peabody.
Indeed, I would love if I had never read “bingo phase”. 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 That would be fun to relive.
The police fails to notice a key to the house in a place as obvious as under the doormat. The police officer seemed way too focused on his looks to spot anything in the case, same with the main female protagonist.
The only pluses were the two surprisingly likable and 3-dimensional main characters, and the vivid setting off- season at a seaside resort town. You want to use an evil twin at the end? No surprises here; no intricate puzzle; just event A leading la princesa de hielo camilla lackberg event B. This is an obvious attempt to capitalize on the Stieg Larsson Trilogy – to the point of using the same translator.

She seemed too obsessed with her own tiny little uninteresting world. Not just dull in an ‘uninteresting, air-headed Read Fleegan’s review of the book. Could this be worse? Nevertheless, I want to talk a bit about why this book just did not work for me.
The murder mystery is ;rincesa and takes a back seat to the author’s obvious issues with any woman not skinny and beautiful or at least working to be skinny and beautiful. 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.
The writing is so juvenile that I can’t get past it enough to appreciate the plot, which may or may not be good I really can’t tell. Turns out not all Scandanavian crime fiction is fantastic.
