Published: 2006



The Stranger (aka The Gallows Bird) by Camilla Lackberg is the 4th in a series of crime novels following Detective Patrik Hedstrom in small town Fjallbacka in Sweden.

In this novel, a new detective is hired (Hanna), the Chief has a new romantic interest, and Patrik & Erica are getting married in a few weeks.

In addition to that, a local woman dies in a car crash and it’s starting to look like it may not have been accidental, since her blood alcohol level read high, but friends say Maris didn’t drink. Note that I felt the grieving of both her partner and her daughter was very “real”.

Meanwhile, wealthy Erling Larson convinces the town counsel that a reality show filming in town will put them on the map…until one of the cast ends up dead. So it’s a little hectic in this small town.

Lackberg definitely wove everything together and came up with a rather surprising ending.

Good Read!
