`Offer[s] intriguing glimpses of Greenland, its relentless summer light and oppressive winter darkness. While the mystery is dramatically resolved, readers will want to learn what's next. . . Fans of Nordic crime fiction have a new author to follow. * Kirkus * Fans of Scandinavian crime fiction will find this a thoroughly atmospheric, melancholy and ultra-graphic thriller that casts a socially critical eye - attributes that are all the calling cards of Nordic noir....Greenland provides a new and interesting setting, with some of the native culture woven into the story. * Crime Fiction Lover [UK] * `A complex atmospheric and menacing read...the story is enmeshed in the culture and politics of Greenland and the relationship with Denmark...it's a nail biting murder mystery, the action takes over and the story hurtles to a riveting denouement, but it's also an insight into a part of the world that we don't normally get to see.' * NB Magazine [UK] * `A grippingly atmospheric yarn... As danger mounts, the landscape, weather and people of the former Danish colony are piercingly observed. Chilling.' * Sunday Times * `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 * `While there are similarities to Stieg Larsson's Millennium series, Nordbo's writing is far more poetic.
