Her work is from the mystery and thriller genres.

“Some Kind of Peace” is the first novel in the “Seri Bergman” series and was released in the year 2009. It appears so idyllic. Something is out place. In this neatly raked gravel parking area is one dazzingly clean black Jeep. The paint of this Jeep reflects a clematis with huge pure white blossoms that climb up a gnarled old apple tree. Somebody is lying under its low trunk and crooked branches. A young woman. Just a girl.

Psychologist Siri Bergman is thirty-four and works in central Stockholm and lives in an isolated cottage by herself out of town. She has got a troublesome secret buried in her past and has just tried moving on with her life. Horrified of the dark, she leaves every single light on when going to bed, having some glasses of wine to calm down her nerves. However, she is unable to shake the feeling somebody is watching her through her blackened windows during the night.

The lifeless body of Sara Metteus, one of Siri’s young patients with a history of sexual abuse and drug addiction, is found floating near the cottage in the water. Siri is no longer able to deny the fact that somebody is out there, just watching her and waiting. Her beloved cat vanishes and she gets a picture of herself from her stalker, it is clear that Siri is next. She is lucky that she can rely on Markus, her best friend. Together, the both of them set about profiling Siri’s aspiring killer, hoping they can catch him before he is able to kill again.

While their investigation plays out, her past and present begin merging and disintegrating. Before too long, everybody in her inner circle becomes a possible suspect. With the suspense building up toward a dramatic conclusion, she is forced to reexamine and relive her own anguished past, and finally gain some sort of peace.

Readers found themselves enjoying this one quite a bit, with its surprising ending and a likable main character in Siri. She is a vulnerable character yet not quite needy. Fans found this to be a real heart-stopping, teeth-clenching piece of fiction with a simple and stark quality.

“The Ice Beneath Her” is the first novel in the “Hanne Lagerlind-Schon” series and was released in the year 2016. Winter’s chill has hit Stockholm while the cops get to the scene of a stunning murder. One unidentified woman lies decapitated in a posh suburban home. It is a savage crime that is made all the more disturbing by its rather uncanny resemblance to one unsolved murder from a decade prior. This time around there is a suspect. The controversial and charismatic chain-store CEO Jesper Orre, who owns the home however is nowhere to be found.

To Manfred Olsson and Peter Lindgren, homicide detectives, nothing about this high-profile, suave businessman, including a playboy reputation and rumors of financial misdeeds, suggests he hides a twisted mind and dark heart of a killer. To find motive, Lindgren and Olsson go to the brilliant profiler Hanne Lagerlind-Schon. She was once a valued police asset, but now is marooned in an unhappy retirement and a marriage that is falling apart, and is eager to exercise her keen skills once again. Hanne wants to offer the detectives a window into the secret soul of Jesper Orre.

They are not the only ones looking. Emma Bohman (a young clerk at Orre’s company), two months previously, chanced met the charming chief executive by chance, and a romance quickly bloomed. Just as quickly as the passionate affair began, it was over once Orre went missing inexplicably. A staggering misfortune after another followed, which left Emma certain that her runaway lover was to blame. It transformed her heartbreak and confusion into anger.

Now chasing the same mysterious guy for their own reasons, Emma and the police are destined to cross paths in a chilling dance of vengeance, obsession, love, and madness gone horribly wrong.

Fans of this found the characters to be deeply human, and are truly the meat of the novel. Camilla delivers a gripping plot with some unexpected surprises and twists to it, and is atmospheric, moody, and nuanced. The mystery does a great job of holding the reader’s interest the entire way through, and unfolds superbly.

“After She’s Gone” is the second novel in the “Hanne Lagerlind-Schon” series and was released in the year 2019. A case that is just as cold as the season is. A profiler that cannot recall. A killer that is prepared to kill again.

Hanne Lagerlind-Schon, psychological profiler, and Peter Lindgren, her partner and investigator, are invited to the tiny, sleepy industrial town of Ormberg. They are to investigate a cold case from a decade prior when a five year old girl’s remains were found in some cairn close to the town.

A recurring memory problem crops back up, Hanne battles to keep track of the goings on in the case. She starts keeping a diary, noting everything that she’s likely to forget to keep appearances up in order to keep her job.

When a woman’s body is discovered at the cairn and a shoe that belongs to Hanne is found close by covered in the blood of the victim, will Hanne’s diary have the key to what went down? How could this new murder link to their old one? How can you put together what actually happened when the pieces continue to fade away?
