The Ice Princess by Camilla Lackberg

This was on my amazon recommendation list so I requested it from the library without really knowing a lot about it!  Alexandra Wijkner is found dead in her bath with her wrists slit.  Initially it appears to be a case of suicide but soon it is discovered that she couldn't have killed herself.

Her childhood friend Erica Falck has returned to the area following the death of her parents and she is asked to write an obituary to Alex.  However, the writing of this throws up some questions and Erica finds herself, along with Detective Patrik Hedstrom conducting their own investigations into the death.

This is a really well written novel, easy to read and introduces some good characters who are easy to like or dislike depending on who they are!  It isn't a gory read but it is fairly gripping.  I think my biggest complaint though is the lack of chapters...there are only 6 in the entire book!!  I am looking forward to reading the next book by this Sweedish author
