The standalone sequel to the critically acclaimed thriller The Girl Without Skin.
When journalist Matthew Cave’s half-sister disappears, leaving behind a trail of blood in an abandoned hut, he realises that they are both pawns in a game of life and death. As a young US soldier stationed in Greenland, their father took part in a secret experiment with deadly consequences. Accused of double homicide, Tom Cave fled. Now his case is reopened, and the demons of the past are unleashed. Is the father Matt’s been searching for his entire life a cold-blooded murderer? And can Matt track him down before the US military does?
Tupaarnaq Siegstad, a young Inuit woman, returns to Nuuk to help her only friend save his sister’s life – and settle a few scores of her own. But as the pressure mounts, Matt starts to wonder: is Tupaarnaq really who he thinks she is?
PRAISE FOR MADS PEDER NORDBO
‘A very satisfying thriller. Packed to the brim with grisly murders, corrupt officials, and sinister secrets, all set against the bleak, yet oddly beautiful, Greenlandic landscape, the bar has certainly been set quite high for the series to come.’ AU Review on The Girl Without Skin
‘Mads Peder Nordbo brings a sense of wonder to the frozen wastes of Greenland…we are totally hooked.’ Australian Women’s Weekly on The Girl Without Skin
‘This intricate crime novel mixes a grisly plot with interesting insights into Greenland’s history and culture.’ Canberra Weekly on The Girl Without Skin
‘While there are similarities to Stieg Larsson’s Millennium series, Nordbo’s writing is far more poetic. Though dazzled by the icecap’s beauty, he’s not blinded to the darkness of man.’ SA Weekend on The Girl Without Skin
