Camilla Läckberg has a well-developed understanding of the twists and turns in human development. If anything, however, her view of human nature is dark. The mood that prevails in the Fjällbacka series rarely reaches the levels of depression and despair found in Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander books, or in Jo Nesbø’s Harry Hole novels. But these are not happy stories. Human folly frequently comes to the surface here. Somehow, it all seems natural for a Swedish writer.
In The Stranger, the fourth entry in the Fjällbacka series, detective Inspector Patrik Hedstrøm and true-crime writer Ericka Falck are raising their months-old daughter, Maya. Or, rather, Ericka is doing all the work. Patrik’s job regularly intrudes. To compound Ericka’s problem, her wedding is imminent, and she’s been unable to find the time to make any plans. To make matters even worse, her younger sister, Anna, and two young children have moved into the house. Anna is in a deep depression after killing her abusive husband in self-defense, leaving Ericka to raise all three children—and, presumably, to make all the arrangements for the wedding. Then Patrik’s sporadic help at home dries up almost completely as he is assigned a brutal and baffling case. A middle-aged woman stinking of alcohol has driven her car off the road and crashed into a tree, apparently either an accident or a suicide. Patrik isn’t so sure, though. And it soon becomes clear that his doubts are well placed.
Meanwhile, a tasteless reality TV show has set up shop in a small town bordering Fjällbacka. Goaded by the show’s producer, six young people are indulging in a toxic mix of alcohol, hard drugs, and sex on camera. Then one of the six, a 19-year-old woman, is murdered, too. Suddenly, Patrik and his colleagues on the police force are strained by investigations into two murders. And one of them is making front-page news all across Sweden because it involves the country’s top-rated reality show.
Every one of the Fjällbacka novels is eventful to a fault. A large cast of characters requires both concentration and a good memory, as Läckberg constantly shifts perspective from one to another. In The Stranger, we become enmeshed in the lives of every one of Patrik’s colleagues, from the hapless and stupid chief of police to the new female detective who joins the force. Patrik’s mother, Ericka’s sister, and her ex-lover all emerge in three dimensions as well. And throughout the book, in a brief reflective passage at the beginning of each chapter, we enter the mind of a man who will clearly emerge with a key role in the story.
If your taste runs to intellectually challenging fare in detective fiction, you’ll love the Fjällbacka series.
And then there is an annoying aspect, from this reader's perspective. Obnoxious characters from a reality show that is being filmed in this town of Fjällbacka, in Tanum Municipality. Their contribution is mostly like a distraction, and an uninteresting one, at that. There must have been another way to write their part; but, I digress…
And finally, some characters are a true testament to narcissism, obnoxiously or sadly so. And some are not bad, per se, just narcissistic. So there is a mix of joyful and tragic, happy and gloomy. Some characters work through their tragedy in a good way, some do not. Some you will worry about a little, others will pass by quickly. The pacing is a bit choppy. The murder is definitely a mystery that manages to cling to your attention.
At the same time Fjallbaca, where Patrik is a police officer - is about to receive it's first group of Reality TV stars. A local businessman has arranged this group of unconventional people to live and be televised in his home town, expecting a lot of good PR and finances to make this an excellent monetary adventure.
As the 2 situations collide - we also are updated on Erica, Patrick's wife, and their new baby Maja
