Inspired to dig deeper cyild her past, she visits a retired history teacher for answers. Detective Patrick Hedstrom is on paternity leave. It seems much more story driven that The Drowning and The Stranger and the action is toned down a bit.
This made it a much more satisfying read.
The Hidden Child (Patrik Hedström, #5) by Camilla Läckberg
I thought it was great. I felt The Hidden Child flowed perfectly. The style of writing was spot on. The language used in The Hidden Child was simple but powerful. I liked the structure of The Hidden Child. The chapters varied in length and include hjdden scenes from the multiple story threads. This meant I was only drip fed the information and was compelled to read on to read the next thread and the next and so on.
Other writers have a horrible habit of chucking everything at the reader in one sweep. I like tje way Lackberg slowly lures you in. I thought this was an effective way of introducing backstory. The characterisation in The Hidden Child was spot on. I got a better sense of the main characters, Erica and Patrick after 3 novels and grew too hieden like them.
The thhe were teh really well drawn, human characters. At no point did Lackberg resort to caricatures. The Hidden Child is just over pages long. Like The Drowning and The Stranger it felt much thinner. I think the pacing of The Hidden Child is perfect. Lackberg does a great job of bringing the village to vivid life. Although the novel is set in a foreign country, Lackberg is able to make the village seem familiar. I got a real sense of place in The Hidden Child.
Once again Lackberg fooled me. I had a theory about who the killer was and I was way off the camillla. I also felt pretty sure the father had been murdered and that the money a dead man had been sending to someone for 50 years had some connection.
Lackberg took me by surprise. I hate it when crime writers make it all obvious. I was a fan of James Patterson for years until his novels became tedious and predictable.
I enjoyed reading about these events even though I was shocked at the beliefs of some of the characters. I liked the title, The Hidden Child but I thought it gave away too many plot details.
The title is allegedly inspired by The Hidden Child Foundation which is a charity for Holocaust survivors.
