Review: The Ice Beneath Her

The Ice Beneath Her The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not sure if I can fit this book into the Nordic-Noir genre, which is one of my favorites, but is is certainly amazing (but quite gruesome in some parts).

A horrible crime brings together the three main characters of this book: Peter, the police detective; Emma, a girl working in a clothes store; and Hanne, the profiler.

A woman has been brutally killed in the home of Jesper Orre, the wealthy owner of the clothes chain where Emma works and he has disappeared.
Emma was in a relationship with him, and he has left her without a word. Also, Peter and Hanne were together many years ago. The relations between them are a very important part of the plot.

These three characters are very complex and perfectly described. The plot is intriguing and the end is one of the best I've read in a long time. All is not as it seems and it was certainly a surprise.
The atmosphere is dark, such as I imagine a winter in Stockholm must be.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
