Format: Paperback
When Eirik Raude (the Red) named the land in the west «Greenland», it turned out to be an exaggeration. But «Iceland» was already taken.
Mr Hoegh is fascinated by Greenland, it seems, and it shows. Smilla, a Greenlander stuck in Copenhagen, is shocked when her neighbour boy dies in an accident. Or - accident? Why would the little boy fearing heights play on the roof? The footprints in the snow tell Smilla - with her sense of snow - that this was no accident.
When the plot is unveiled, it turns out that Smilla has got herself some dangerous enemies. To find the key she boards a ship sailing for Greenland, and - of course - the danger is not lessened in the closed world of the ship.
The solution? You'd better read the book yourself. But Mr Hoegh gives us a whodunit which carries a lot of civilisation critique and paints a fascinating picture of Greenland. It is a good read if you are interested in either.

Peter Hoeg deals with the themes of humankind's quest to find truth through science -- and the ultimate realization that this is not possible. The humanity of the characters and the unresolved mysteries draw the reader in -- I think Hoeg is one of the top writers today.

I have read thousands of mysteries in my life and this one stands out as the best. It is well written and thoughtful with well developed characters and an exciting plot. It is the standard by which I measure all other mysteries.
