Summary
Acclaimed Swedish author Camilla Grebe makes her solo American debut with a psychological thriller as cunning in its twists as it is captivating in its storytelling-for fans of the celebrated crime fiction of Camilla LAckberg, Jo Nesb, Ruth Ware, and Fiona Barton. Winter's chill has descended on Stockholm as police arrive at the scene of a shocking murder. An unidentified woman lies beheaded in a posh suburban home-a brutal crime made all the more disturbing by its uncanny resemblance to an unsolved killing ten years earlier. But this time there's a suspect: the charismatic and controversial chain-store CEO Jesper Orre, who owns the home but is nowhere to be found. To homicide detectives Peter Lindgren and Manfred Olsson, nothing about the suave, high-profile businessman-including a playboy reputation and rumors of financial misdeeds-suggests he conceals the dark heart and twisted mind of a cold-blooded killer. In search of a motive, Lindgren and Olsson turn to the brilliant criminal profiler Hanne Lagerlind-SchOn. Once a valued police asset, now marooned in unhappy retirement and a crumbling marriage, she's eager to exercise her keen skills again-and offer the detectives a window into the secret soul of Jesper Orre. But they're not the only ones searching. Two months before, Emma Bohman, a young clerk at Orre's company, chanced to meet the charming chief executive, and romance swiftly bloomed. Almost as quickly as the passionate affair ignited, it was over when Orre inexplicably disappeared. One staggering misfortune after another followed, leaving Emma certain that her runaway lover was to blame and transforming her confusion and heartbreak into anger. Now, pursuing the same mysterious man for different reasons, Emma and the police are destined to cross paths in a chilling dance of obsession, vengeance, madness, and love gone hellishly wrong. Advance praise for The Ice Beneath Her "Exceptional."-Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Fans of Scandinavian crime fiction, and crime fiction generally, will enjoy the understated, angsty drama created by Grebe; librarians desperate for Girl on the Train read-alikes can also turn to this for readers who enjoy an antiheroine."-Booklist "Impressive ... a tour de force that lifts its author to the front rank among the increasingly crowded field of Nordic noir."-Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "The Ice Beneath Her deserves to be called a page-turner-I read it in one sitting! The narrative is fast-paced and the twists superb."-Cecilia EkbAck, bestselling author of Wolf Winter "Slowly and subtly, Camilla Grebe lets The Ice Beneath Her unfold into a multilayered, psychologically nuanced murder mystery in which the truth, rather than drawing nearer, keeps slipping further and further away-until it strikes with full force."-Arne Dahl, bestselling author of Misterioso "Tense, gripping, and utterly unpredictable ... Camilla Grebe is an extraordinarily gifted writer and a master of suspense."-Kristina Ohlsson, bestselling author of Unwanted From the Hardcover edition
