9781408821091: The Girl in the Ice (A Konrad Simonsen Thriller)

Under the heartless vault of the Greenland's artic sky the body of a girl is discovered. Half-naked and tied up, buried hundreds of miles from any signs of life, she has lain alone, hidden in the ice cap, for twenty-five years. Now an ice melt has revealed her.

When Detective Chief Superintendent Konrad Simonsen is flown in to investigate this horrific murder and he sees how she was attacked, it triggers a dark memory and he realises this was not the killer's only victim. As Simonsen's team work to discover evidence that has long since been buried, they unearth truths that certain people would rather stayed forgotten, disturbing details about the moral standing of some of Denmark's political figures are revealed and powerful individuals are suddenly working against them. But the pressure is on as it becomes clear that the killer chooses victims who all look unsettlingly similar, a similarity that may be used to the investigators' advantage, just so long as they can keep the suspect in their sights.

Serious, complex novel by a Danish brother and sister raises disturbing issues ( Marcel Berlins, The Times)

Terrific piece of Nordic noir. A rattle-paced, twisty thriller . I can't wait for the next in the series ( Saga)

Outstanding crime thriller. Everything works in this dark Scandinavian procedural - the intelligent and complex plot, the fallible lead, and the atmospheric prose ( Publisher's Weekly)

Book Description:

The second in the international bestselling five-part Konrad Simonsen series, a chilling tale from the authors of The Hanging
