The Drowning by Camilla Lackberg
Originally Published: 2008
The Drowning by Camilla Lackberg is the 6th in a series of mysteries centered in a small Swedish town, with Detective Patrick Hedstrom and is wife Erica, who is now expecting twins. Her sister Anna is also pregnant.
When Erica’s friend Christian finally publishes his book “The Mermaid” to a roaring success, she becomes concerned when he faints at the party. He tells her he’s just very tired, and has been concerned about his friend Magnus, who has been missing for a few months. Eventually he tells her that he has been receiving threatening letters ever since he started writing his book.
Both Erica and Patrik delve deeper, and find that perhaps Christian is still not revealing everything. Apparently a couple of Magnus’ other friends are having issues as well, although they might not all be related.
With Patrick running on empty, and Erica in the middle of things, the twists and turns in this book keep you interested.
One of her best !
