From the back cover: One winter evening the neighbour's six-year-old boy falls to his death from the apartment roof in Copenhagen.
Accidental death, say the police. But Smilla Jasperson, a resourceful, tenacious and bloody-minded Greenlander, knows the boy well; moreover she has a feeling for snow--and those last footprints tell her a tale... Her investigation starts in Denmark and leads to the Arctic ice cap as Smilla doggedly homes in on her quarry.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Released on the desk in the post office in memory of Oppem's birthday in conjunction with School of Bookcrossing: Citizenship. Oppem was a generous bookcrosser, but she was trying to read from the 1001-BYMRBYD list and this was on her wish list (and also is a 1001-book, too).

This is a book from the 1001-book you must read before you die list. Just added it to the surprise ring as I thought it needed to travel further.

Thanks for the 1001 book. I am trying to read 20 a year from the list. I've read abut 175 of them. A few I have read more than once - some more than 5 times. What a fun surprise.

1001 book. I thought it was beautifully written. It is set in Denmark and Greenland and I enjoyed learning about this area of the world. The story line, I found average with a lot of details that at times bogged down the story.
