book by Camilla Läckberg
The Stonecutter (Swedish: Stenhuggaren) is a 2005 novel, a psychological thriller by Camilla Läckberg. It was translated by Steven T. Murray in 2008.
A parallel story concerns a stonecutter in the area in the 1920s who falls under the spell of his employer's daughter, Agnes. This sub-plot regarding Anders' forbidden liaisons with his boss' spoiled daughter interweaves with a modern-day mystery. Camilla delicately adjusts the disparate narrative features noose-like around her many analysed characters, her unique approach of revealing unexpected/sad truths about the residents in reverse dominates.
