    1. I’m not even sure I can pinpoint exactly what it is, but something about this clever and well-crafted tale felt completely different; like a breath of fresh Nordic air. Camilla Grebe will take you by the hand and lead you down a path that seems obvious, but be prepared, it’s anything but. It’s obsession at it’s darkest. Maybe it was the three very distinct perspectives, all told in first-person, which is a tad unusual, that sparked the feeling of this being different somehow. I have a ha [...]


    2. A body is found in the residence of a controversial CEO Jesper, headless, staged and Peter and his crew are brought in. The woman is unidentified but there are similarities to a murder of a man from ten years past that had never been solved. They bring in Hanne, who had worked with them on the previous case, somewhat of a profiler, but she is dealing with a silent enemy of her own. Narrated by three different characters, Peter, Hanne and a young woman who had a relationship with Jesper, we trave [...]

    4. 4.25! The ending took me by surprise, I wasn't expecting it. Very good book, I almost want some of these characters to be part of a series.


    5. ''It feels as if I'm falling into a deep black hole again. And outside, the rain keeps falling over Stockholm. Even the sky is crying.''I've been eagerly waiting to read this debut novel by Camilla Grebe, and I can say that, as an avid reader of Nordic thrillers, I was not disappointed.There are many distinct characteristics of the genre in this book. The different POVs, the bleak atmosphere, the dark, psychotic plot, all those elements that have brought the Scandi-Nordic thriller at the top of [...]


    6. This was an engaging book, but in the first few introductory chapters, everything felt so depressing.Three main characters are telling their stories. Peter Lindgren is a homicide detective. He has issues with an ex-girlfriend who is the mother of his son with whom he has no relationship. Hanne Lagerlind-Schön is a criminal profiler. She is bored with her marriage and wants out, and she has a history with Peter. Emma Bohman works in a retail clothing store. Her childhood was not idyllic, but she [...]


    7. A Dynamic Thriller!The Ice Beneath Her by Camilla Grebe is a Psychological Thriller about a mystery woman who is found murdered in the most brutal of ways, in the home, Jesper Orre, the CEO of a very large company, who appears to be missing and is of course, the prime suspect. The novel is told from three perspectives, Peter and Hanne (a detective and psychological profiler) who investigate the crime and share a past, and Emma, the fiancé of Jesper Orre. Emma’s narration starts in the past an [...]


    8. The Ice Beneath Her is one of the best novels I have read within the past year.There are those books that very early on in your reading of them cause you to think, "unless something really changes, this is going to be a five - or "six" - star read for me. I was not even halfway done with The Ice Beneath Her when I knew I was reading something special.The Ice Beneath Her satisfied so many of my crime fiction preferences.Most of the novel is a masterclass in "show, don't tell".I have rarely been s [...]


    9. Holy Nordic crime fiction, Batman!Ughhh, please just completely ignore that I started this book review with a holy batman exclamation.If you’re a fan of the aforementioned genre, you will love this novel. It’s really hit or miss for me, but this one is a hit.Let’s start bookworm asses at the beginning, shall we?A unidentified, decapitated woman is found in the bed of a moderately famous, very wealthy CEO. And he, Jesper Orre, has seemingly disappeared.DI Peter Lindgren is lead detective on [...]


    10. I am a great lover of Nordic Noir and, having never read anything by Camilla Grebe before, was keen to try this out. She has co-authored earlier books, but this is her debut thriller solely written by herself and, in many ways, is typical of the genre. Set largely in Stockholm, this is a dark and unsettling novel, narrated by three main characters. There is Detective Inspector Peter Lindgren, Hanne, a police consultant who has early onset Alzheimer’s and a young shop worker called Emma Bohman. [...]


    11. More about character discontent than a gruesome murder suspense.The format and the structural decisions made in the storytelling did not work for me. First person point of view is powerful when used correctly. Unfortunately, here the rotating first person point-of-view between multiple characters was disorienting and felt like head-hopping; combined with the multiple memory flashbacks with no sections breaks or indications was baffling. I had repeated instances of needing to reread the beginning [...]


    12. "Winter’s chill has descended on Stockholm as police arrive at the scene of a shocking murder. An unidentified woman lies beheaded in a posh suburban home-a brutal crime made all the more disturbing by its uncanny resemblance to an unsolved killing ten years earlier. But this time there’s a suspect: the charismatic and controversial chain-store CEO Jesper Orre, who owns the home but is nowhere to be found."The murders are gruesome in detail and often difficult to read. But the writing is eng [...]


    13. This. Book. Is. Amazing!!!!Scandinavian crime fiction at its best. Vivid atmosphere, rich character development, and whip-smart plotting. I absolutely loved this book and simply could NOT put it down. This story alternates between 3 narrators, and I loved the way Camilla Grebe draws you slowly but surely toward the heart of the story through the unique perspective of the 3 narrators. This is much more character-driven, less procedural-heavy than other Scandinavian authors, and Grebe has clearly [...]


    14. Really got hooked on “The Ice Beneath Her” – a clever and addictive psychological thriller with some great main characters (one of whom I disliked to the point of loving) and a lovely twisty turny whodunnit at the heart that will keep you on your reading toes.I found it an interesting dynamic – a profiler with dementia and a detective with commitment issues, investigating the rather horrific death of a woman who can’t be identified, seemingly by a man who is really not that nice of a g [...]


    15. A young woman is found beheaded in the house of a controversial CEO of a clothing chain. The identity of the woman is unknown. The businessman, Jesper Orre, has simply vanished.The story is told from three first-person perspectives:The investigating DI, Peter Lindgren, a disillusioned and despondent man about to hit the big 5-0 whose only true commitment has always been his job.A former profiler, Hanne, who is asked back to assist with the investigation when similarities to a crime from a decade [...]


    16. The book starts out with a great Inuit proverb: "You never know friend or foe, 'til the ice beneath gives way."When I started reading this, I was immediately disappointed that it was in 1st POV. And it's alternating POV of three different people in the story. I have to admit when I know this in advance, I often opt out of reading a book. I tend not to read 1st POV and as I just don't care for this format, it takes considerably longer for me to get pulled into the story.There are 3 MCs and POVs i [...]

    18. Full review on novelgossipI’ve really been on a roll lately with picking up excellent thrillers and The Ice Beneath Her is no exception! Full of complicated and interesting characters, intrigue and deception, and a twist that I didn’t entirely see coming, Grebe is an author that is on my radar now.This book is told from three different perspectives; Peter a police officer, Hanne who consults with the police occasionally, and Emma a young woman who is wrapped up in the murder investigation. P [...]


    19. *** 4.5 out of 5 stars ***As a fan of Scandi Noir I was instantly intrigued by this book, the description sounded like just the sort of book to get stuck into on a quiet night.This gripping psychological thriller immediately grabs the reader's attention, the decapitated body of a young woman is discovered, and more curiously it was discovered in the home of an infamous business tycoon. With narration from the perspective of three characters makes this story very interesting, and helps to make th [...]


    20. There have been so many reviews for this book so I will keep this short. This is an excellent psychological thriller, highly addictive and one that you will not want to put down until you are finished. The story is clever and fast paced told from three different perspectives, Emma engaged to a missing entrepreneur, Hanna a retired police profiler and Peter a police officer. It seems that none of these characters are particularly happy but together they make for great reading, riveting, compellin [...]


    21. 3.5 starsThis psychological thriller set in Stockholm begins with a gruesome murder that brings together 3 distinct characters who take turns giving us their side of the story.As DI Peter Lindgren approaches the big 5-0, he struggles with that age old question: is this all there is? Failed personal relationships & constant dealings with the dregs of society have left him battered & tired. The only thing he’s good at is his job. But when a young woman is found beheaded, it recalls a cas [...]


    22. Fast-paced with a surprise ending this was a great read. An unidentified decapitated woman is found and the case is being investigated by Peter, with commitment problems and Hanne, a profiler with early on-set Alzheimer’s whose heart Peter broke many years ago. Told from the prospective of the murdered woman, Peter and Hanne, it moves back and forth between their views from past to present. I would like to thank the Publisher and Net Galley for the chance to read this book.


    23. Dear reader,Browsing in my local bookstore recently,I picked up this book,read the hauntingly beautiful prose on the first page and knew that it was going to be a fab read! Thankfully this book didn't let me down and in reality,surpassed all my expectations. I'm a crime buff,and arrogantly thought that this book would be based on the usual hunt for 'who dun it',a race against time, peppered with a little suspense and.I was wrongon all counts. If you're looking for a fast paced,heavy handed polic [...]


    24. Audio 3.5-4 Kept my interest. As Petra said in her review-solution to the crime becomes apparent about halfway through the novel, but doesn't detract much from enjoyment. See Petra's or Diane S's review . : ))



    25. This exquisite solo debut from Camilla Grebe makes quite an impact and has a strikingly individual approach combining an intense psychological thriller against a backdrop of a police investigation into a brutal murder. The narrative is provided by three markedly distinct narrators, all of whom offer their questionable perspective on the events surrounding a macabre beheading which serves as the basis for their lives being thrown together. Told in two different timelines this novel opens with an [...]


    26. As winter descends on Stockholm, police officers Peter Lindgren and Manfred Olsson are investigating the murder of an unidentified young woman found decapitated in the house of Jesper Orre, the controversial, charismatic, and currently missing CEO of Clothes & More. What makes the case even more baffling is its remarkable similarities to an unsolved murder ten years ago.The book is told from the alternating perspectives of Peter, struggling to see the point of his job and even his life; Emma [...]


    27. Peter is a workaholic detective with severe commitment problems in relationships. Hanne is a profiler with early onset dementia whose heart was broken by Peter 10 years earlier. They are brought back together to solve the case of a horrific murder. A decapitated unidentified young woman is found in the house of a much hated corporate big wig.The Ice Beneath Her was an addictive psychological thriller. It is told from the view point of the three main characters and moves back and forth smoothly t [...]


    28. Looking for a satisfying crime thriller? “The Ice Beneath Her” is must read choice. This is an emotionally complex thriller that contains abundant twists and turns. It’s a fabulous read.Set in Stockholm, author Camillia Grebe uses the harsh winter and dreary skies to enhance the grisly story. An unidentified woman is beheaded in an upscale suburban neighborhood of Stockholm. The home belongs to a playboy chain-store owner who has garnered ugly press for his business practices and his woman [...]


    29. A young woman is found brutally beheaded in the home of a famous businessman, Jesper Orre. The scene is chaotic and bloody and to Detective Peter Lindgren, it is eerily reminiscent of a case he and his partner, Manfred Olsson, worked 10 years ago where a male immigrant was also found beheaded. That case was never solved. Here, in present day, Jesper is mysteriously missing, and Peter and Manfred have no idea about the murdered woman's identity. So they turn to Hanne, a behavioral police consulta [...]
