The remote resort town of Fjällbacka has seen more than its share of tragedies, but a little girl found in a fisherman's net may be the worst yet - especially when the postmortem reveals that this was a methodical murder, not an accidental drowning.
Local detective Patrik Hedstrom has just become a father, and it’s his grim task to discover who could have killed a child both he and his partner Erica knew well. He realizes that the solution lies with finding a motive for this terrible crime. Although Hedstrom is no stranger to the criminal mind, he couldn’t possibly predict how this case will reach into Fjällbacka’s darkest heart, spanning generations and ripping aside its idyllic façade, perhaps forever.
"A perfectly plotted and paced mystery bolstered by strong, realistic characters makes this a must-read for all followers of Scandinavian crime fiction." (Booklist)
"[Camilla Lackberg] strips conventional veneers from her achingly complex characters." (Publishers Weekly)
“The Stonecutter, by Camilla Läckberg . . . continues her excellent series . . . The main narrative is cleverly interspersed with flashbacks from the past, the relevance of which becomes apparent as the novel progresses. Läckberg is particularly good at portraying the claustrophobia of a small community in which everyone knows everyone else and the police may well be friends with killers.” (Marcel Berlins, The Times)

The narrator was excellent,so I would say I got more from the listening experience.
Ms. Lackberg wove an ingenious plot from strands of the past and present to create a riveting story. The suspense and uncertainty built inexorably.
Patric was the unifying character throughout, but each player was extremely well done.
Yes - it was difficult to pace myself.
I absolutely want to listen to more from this author. She is first rate, a thrilling new Scandinavian mystery writer.
