Under the heartless vault of Greenland's arctic 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 realizes this was not the killer's only victim. As Simonsen's team works to discover evidence that has long since been buried, they unearth truths that certain people would prefer stayed forgotten. Disturbing details about the moral standing of some of Denmark's political figures are revealed and powerful individuals are suddenly working against the case. 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.

The most boring book I have ever read.

Danish homicide investigator Simonsen and his team are called to Greenland when a missing girl is discovered in the melting icecap.

Much better than ‘The Hanging’ but the psychopath suspect is not my favorite thriller reading. There’s a lot of detail before this book wraps up. Looking ahead to the next in the series this detail scenario seems a characteristic of their writing. Not sure I’ll stay with the Hammers.

(The second book in the Konrad Simonsen series) Not a great favorite. I like the series, but this story is not strong - needs editing. I prefer "who done it's " to this outline. Very mild recommendation because the character's lives are developed sequentially... Kristi & Abby Tabby

A well written crime story with incisive insight into Scandinavian police procedures. The characters are multi-dimensional drawing the reader into a feeling of caring relationship with them. I really enjoyed this novel.
