The Hidden Child (Patrik Hedström, #5) by Camilla Läckberg
I liked the author’s set up in the beginning. Quotes from The Hidden Child. Once again Lackberg fooled me. Anyhow, what allured me to stick to this book is the way the author narrates the whole story, hivden, piece-by-piece in a forward motion, where there were no wrong turns to mislead me into another theory of what has actually happened in Erica’s mother’s past.
Eventually the history begins to unravel right in front of their eyes when the hidden secrets surface up about a young and naive couple who got caught up between love and war.
The feeling I had in the beginning with the great set up, wasn’t camila throughout. Also, once the mystery was resolved the explanation was too long and drawn out. There was too much meandering and not enough action. I have to decide if I should stay in Fjallbacka or not. You could read this novel in the worst conditions imaginable and still keep track of the plot. The policeman who was on paternity leave was great. Rachel After having read up to this one, I would advise reading in order.

Closer to a 2.

The main characters are developed with the pace of the mystery. It’s a page turner that holds you in its tight grip and you can’t put it down until after all secrets are laid bare. Jul 16, AdiTurbo rated it really liked it.
Some parts of it were okay: Veel langer dan bij de voorgaande delen. Those two things are my only real complaints, so I’m surprised I didn’t like it more than I did. Firstly don’t read the blurb, it is somewhat misleading. Reluctantly Erica must read her mother’s wartime diaries.
Sem surpresas mais um bom livro lackberf escritora sueca Camilla Lackberg. I was a fan of James Patterson for years until his novels became tedious and predictable.
A escritora sueca Camilla Lackberg escreve mais um romance policial tendo como protagonistas a escritora Erica Falk e o inspector policial Patrick Hedstrom. I thought this was an effective way of introducing backstory. Patrik Hedstrom has to only participate in this murder investigation on the fringe because he’s supposed to be on paternity leave. What do entries in a diary, a Nazi Iron Cross medal, and a retired history professor found murdered in his chair by teens who broke into his house have in common?
Al ga ik nu eerst wat anders lezen. If Erica and co were less generous, they would not get anything like as far in their investigations.
But, like, Patrik will do things like go on an accidental two-hour errand run, while leaving the baby with Erica even though she’s now working and he’s on paternity I’m not really sure why I’m still thd these, but I guess they’re predictably enjoyable?
The Hidden Child is a successful novel because it is intelligent, interesting, and at least a little melancholy.
The Hidden Child
On page 80 the author had the medical examiner explain that Erik had been killed by a right handed person standing in front of him who hit him on the right temple. A dreadful secret held by a scared young man who escaped into Sweden, fleeing the Germans. Hirden author here simply played with the minds of the readers in her own way, thus reproducing a brilliant masterpiece.
The mystery doesn’t play any games with the minds of readers, yet the author takes a lot of time to unravel it, by giving each and every character a proper presence in this puzzle, I mean it’s like every one adds up to this mystery. One problem with a translated work is that it’s hard to camiilla where to assign blame for lackbegg book’s faults regarding language. The book held me from the very first chapter till the very last line of the book, although I must say, the book ended with a bang I mean literally!

Lackberg does a great job of bringing the village to vivid life. I think the pacing of The Hidden Child is perfect. That makes absolutely no sense to me. This kind of books, along with the Sandra Brown type and the most recent vampire literature, are – for me – an explanation for the fact that some people are still reading. And it deals with the impact of world war 2. There are times when it seems like sentiment is being slathered over the page, but this is the sort of emotional response that is more than forgivable five books into a series; it’s practically expected.
