(I was wrong, by the way. I am now hooked to mysteries and whatnot).
So, the book my friend L reccomended me was: "Ice Princess" by Camilla Lackberg.
Now I'm the worst person to read thrillers and mysteries because I just can't put the book down until I find the murderer. I just have to know! This is a great book because you are completly in the dark ALL THE TIME, which I kind of hated sometimes because they hid things from you and you know they were hiding those things (like Erica would find a note but they'd never tell you what the note said, for example). There was also some tension on the dialogues, sometimes, they felt really out of place and like they had been forced, especially at the begining of Erica's and Patrick's relationship.
Anyways, I overall liked it. I had never read a Scandinavian book but now I kind of want to get the second book ("The Preacher").
p.s.: also, the book gets wayyyyy better if you imagine Patrick as Daniel Craig. I did! ;)
And for the quote:
"'How did she look?'
At first Erica didn’t understand what Birgit had said. Her voice was tiny, like a child’s. Erica didn’t know what to answer.‘Lonely,’ was what finally came out, and she regretted it at once."
