As winter's chill descends on Stockholm, homicide detectives Peter Lindgren and Manfred Olsson arrive at a crime scene, a posh suburban home where an unidentified woman was beheaded--a murder made more disturbing by its uncanny resemblance to an unsolved killing ten years earlier. As the detectives search for motives and the homeowner, CEO Jesper Orre, they enlist the help of retired criminal profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schön. But they aren't the only ones searching. A young clerk from Orre's company, Emma Bohman, had an affair with Orre right before he disappeared. One staggering misfortune after another followed, leaving Emma certain that Orre was to blame. Pursuing the same 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.

"The Ice Beneath Her" is a Scandinavian mystery set in Stockholm. The story unfolds through the eyes of three main characters: Emma Bohman (a young store clerk), Hanne Lagerlind-Schön (a criminal profiler who has been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer's disease), and Peter Lindgren (a homicide detective).
Great character development, intense atmosphere, and solid writing. Definitely will give Camilla Grebe's other stories a read!

This was my first book from a new author for me, Camilla Grebe. Very well plotted out and held my attention from beginning to end. Can't wait to read more from this author.

Just when I thought there was nothing new in mystery writing, Grebe has given us this unique, fast=moving but in-depth psychological study centered on three interesting and unusual characters.
