THE HIDDEN CHILD by Camilla Lackberg Review

*I was given a free copy of this book for my honest review*

Crime writer Erica Falck is shocked to discover a Nazi medal among her late mother's possessions. Haunted by a childhood of neglect, she resolves to dig deep into her family's past and finally uncover the reasons why. Her enquiries lead her to the home of a retired history teacher. He was among her mother's circle of friends during the Second World War but her questions are met with bizarre and evasive answers. Two days later he meets a violent death. Detective patrik Hedstrom, Erica's husband, is on paternity leave but soon becomes embroiled in the murder investigation. Who would kill so ruthlessly to bury secrets so old? Reluctantly Erica must read her mother's wartime diaries. But within the pages is a painful revelation about Erica's past. Could what little knowledge she has be enough to endanger her husband and newborn baby? The dark past is coming to light, and no one will escape the truth of how they came to be . . .


I had never heard of this author but the description sounded good so I couldn't wait to read it.

For some reason I have been reading a lot of crime, mystery, thrillers lately. It isn't a bad thing because I do love those genre of books and I really couldn't wait to read The Hidden Child. 

The book is the 5th book in the series.  I haven't read any of the other books and I think it would have been best to read all the previous books before reading this one because I was a little confused at the beginning of the book but other than that I absolutely love this book because it is so very well written. 

I highly recommend this book to all who are into crime/mystery/thrillers.
