Staff Reviews


A harsh, fierce story with a harsher, fiercer heroine; a murder mystery with many moments of visceral beauty and insight. Smilla, half Danish and half Greenlandic, refuses to accept the official version of how a child, her former friend, met his death. Her pursuit of the truth will take her through the bleaker wastes of human nature and her own heart.
