Or maybe you are and I'm late to the party. (Marilyn Thiele already knows how terrific the books are.) I picked up The Drowning from my library's leisure reading section and was immediately hooked. Then found out to my delight that it was part of an eight-book series of crime novels that take place in the Swedish resort town of Fjällbacka, which is a real place that I now want to visit (even though the main characters in the series find the summer tourists irritating).
The novels have everything I want in my mystery books. Lovable characters who are interesting and flawed, a little bit of humor here and there, and the kind of pacing that makes you want to call in sick to work (even though I would never do that) (I really wouldn't -- but oh how I wish I could sometimes).
As of this writing, the official author site had been hacked, so I won't link to it. Presumably the problem will be cleared up quickly so that Läckberg's 12 million readers can find out what's next for the author.
