Born in 1974, Camilla Lackberg lives in a suburb of Stockholm with her three children. After graduating from Gothenburg University of Economics, she moved to Stockholm where she worked for a few years as an economist. However, a course in creative crime writing became the trigger to a drastic change of career. The same week her son was born in August 2002, her first novel Isprinsessan, (The Ice Princess) was accepted for publication. Camilla is now a worldwide bestseller renowned for her thrillers featuring Detective Patrik Hedstroem and his wife, crime writer Erica Falck. Her novels are al based in Fjallbacka, the small fishing village where Camilla was born. Her hobbies are cooking - she's written a cookbook with a chef called Flavours from Fjallbacka - and spending time with friends.
