A little boy falls off a roof in Copenhagen and is killed. Smilla, his neighbour, suspects it is not an accident: she has seen his footsteps in the snow, and, having been brought up by her mother, a Greenlander, she has a feeling for snow.


Great touching and thrilling story !

OK, it had to wait a little bit longer, but I finished this book with really cold weather and white trees, not really what we're used to in The Netherlands ;-)

I liked the book a lot, allthough I sometimes had problems following the plot, for two reasons: sometimes my English wasn't good enough and I didn't have the time to sit and read for a few hours, so the story became 'fragmented'.

The story was compelling enough to remain interesting, though. So every weekend I picked it up again. I think it's a very original story, from a surprising (greenlandish) perspective. It's great to learn more about the world while reading an exciting story.

In my head it's linked to The God of Small Things, because that novel too was hard for me to read in English and had an 'exotic' setting.

Thank you very much for sending me this book kinedi!! I will make sure this book finds another reader.
