The Queen of Crime, Camilla Läckberg, is spicing things up a bit. Despite selling more than 26 million copies of her Fjällbacka murder books, she’s introducing a new character/series to readers. Faye is a smart, sexy entrepreneur who Läckberg admits reminds her a lot of herself…to a certain extent. “The Golden Cage” is a story of female empowerment and sisterhood with some steamy sex scenes mixed in. We talk with Läckberg about the challenge of writing those racy scenes as well as the inspiration for one of the main characters, Chris. She also explains what Nordic Noir is, chats about her love of true crime (and what she’s watching on Netflix) and reveals what U.S. destination she wants to visit most (you’ll never guess what it is).
