    An engrossing book that sees Matthew Cave a Danish journalist sent out to the ice fields of Greenland after the discovery of a mummified body The mummy is believed to be from the Viking days so a police guard is set up for the night but the next day the body of the policeman is found viciously murdered gutted and flayed and the mummy gone Matthew soon finds similarities to a series of murders from 1973 where the victims are gutted and flayed the same as the policeman After receiving a notebook belonging to a policeman investigating the 1973 murders Matthew is soon drawn in to a tangled web of deceit and intrigue which starts to spiral out of control putting him in mortal danger For Matthew is getting too close to the truthI found myself rivetted to this book racing through it uickly to find out the truth about the mummy and who had killed the policeman but be warned this is not an easy read It contains some very dark themes and many readers may find them disturbing It's a gritty and sombre crime novel that wont appeal to everyone I do however recommend it to anyone who likes their crime realistic yet grimMy thanks to Text Publishing for an advance copy The opinions are entirely my own

    This translated crime fiction from Danish author Mads Peder Nordbo falls suarely into the Scandi Noir genre it has all the dark and disturbing elements grisly murders and a brutality that is the trademark of that genre albeit it is set in the unusual setting of Greenland It offers a social and political commentary on the dark history of the country The grieving Matthew Cave has returned to Greenland from Denmark he spent the first four years of his life here coming after the traumatising death of his wife and unborn daughter in a car accident He is based in Nuuk Greenland's capital working as a journalist on the local paper Sermitsia and looking to find out what happened to his father an American soldier that used to be based at Thule air base Lured by the possibility of a exclusive Cave arrives on the scene at the ice fields where the rare discovery of a mummified Viking has been discoveredThe following day he returns to find the mummified body has disappeared and the police officer guarding it has been gruesomely murdered and eviscerated His murder echoes the MO of 4 murdered men in Nuuk back in the early 1970s flayed and gutted all the victims were suspected of terrible crimes An investigating Danish policeman Jakob Pederson disappeared assumed murdered leaving behind his notes on the case and on the missing lost girls of the time now long forgotten Cave is given his notebook and begins to look into these forty year old murders only to find the past rears its ugly head in the present with murders as powerful and ruthless forces look to silence any emergence of the shocking truths and secrets Cave finds himself helped by a young Inuit woman Tupaarna with her shaved head and tattooed body recently released from a 12 year stretch in prison for the apparent murder of her family She acts as guide to Greenlandic culture for Cave as he finds himself eating raw and bloodied seal liver on a seal hunt Tupaarna is treated as a suspect for the murders by the police which fuels her drive to find the real killersNordbo does a terrific job in providing an excellent sense of location from the heavy driving rain mud intense cold and ice the geography of Greenland Nuu its culture the deprivations faced by the local communities the sexism and the politics and history of the country In a narrative that goes back and forth in time Norbo writes a riveting hard edged and heartbreaking story of child sexual abuse secretive medical testing political corruption and stomach churning murders I loved the richly descriptive portrayal of the location and found the novel atmospheric so gripping with plenty of tension and surprising twists There is some wonderful characterisation in the diverse cast of characters presented in the book I was particularly drawn to that of Tupaarna a woman that faintly reminded me of Lisbeth Salander Highly recommended Many thanks to Text Publishing for an ARC

    35 Stars rounded up to a 4When a mummified body is found in the crevasse on the edge of an ice sheet the body is believed to be the rare find of a Viking corpse Journalist Matthew Cave is sent to cover the story He and his photographer are excited to be first on the scene and look forward to breaking such a huge story But the next morning the mummified corpse is gone and in its place is the body of the police officer guarding the corpse who has been flayed and gutted This is a brutal one folks Matthew soon finds similarities between this case and the case of four men who were found murdered in the same manner i 1973 The Danish Police officer in charge of that investigation went missing assumed to have been murdered but his journal and information on the men and missing girls from the village was left behind Matthew and Jacob are both tragic figures Matthew lost his pregnant wife and unborn daughter in a car accident He suffers horrible nightmares and mourns their loss every day Jacob's father abandoned him and his Mother when he was four years old He has no answers why and has always wondered why his father never came home Both are haunted by the brutality of the murders and their link to missing girls in the villageMatthew soon receives help from a woman named Tupaarna who was recently released from prison for serving time for murdering her family she has always claimed to be innocent of the crimes The Character of Tupaarna reminded me somewhat of Lisbeth Salander The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with her tough and gritty nature But Tupaarna takes it up a notch with her distrust and disdain at menThe time jumps back and forth between the current day and 1973 as both men try to solve the case Which one will solve it? At what cost does the truth come? Again this is a brutal book which involves grisly murders disturbing crimes against children and the search for the truth Plus those statistics given in the book shudders how one wishes they were not real There is a lot to think about here It had me thinking about the cold and the harshness of the environment and its possible effect on one’s mental status Who would commit such murders? Who has the skill to flay and gut a man? Why? Who are the victims? Who took the missing girls? How are these crimes related if at all?This is a translated book and it may take readers in some places they do not want to go It's dark gritty and raw This book is also very atmospheric Make no mistake the land is also a character in this book The Author does a great job as describing the numbing cold the landscape the chill and the characters reaction to the weather and landscapeNot for the faint at heart but well worth it if you have the stomach for itThank you to the Author Text Publishing and NetGalley who provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own

    I want to thank Text Publishing the author and Netgalley for the chance to read and review this book All for the measly price of a reviewI'll be honest right from the start and tell 'ya that by the time I went to Netgalley to review this story that it was already absent Gone Normally I'd just say to heck with it and move on This dang story thoughit stuck with me Two weeks after reading it I finally realized why I was so bummed out It wasn't the ending and it had nothing to do with how the story played out Truth is that I loved this book I loved the characters The location The freaking creepy tale of abuse neglect and revenge Thing is that I wanted this all of this to go on No not this story but another With the same Cop from the past and the same reporter and tattooed woman from now I adored these people Damn they were threatened damn near killed and yet they cared so much This author made me feel The feels I've always wanted to visit Greenland It's just a thing with me I love cold snow glaciersblah de blah Then when I was reading this I saw that there are no roads leading out from towns in Greenland You actually have to take a boat no problem or take a freaking tiny itsy bitsy plane from one town to another That may have been the most terrifying thing in this story OK maybe that's an exaggeration because flaying is awful too But a deathmobile? Oh no Flaying or flying? Neither if not a ⛵ boat then I'm staying home Wait? Did you say an igloo? For shits sakeI guess I'll fly First Xanax Then fly Man I really loved the story and characters But because it's a tale that's told in two different timelines I see that I won't be reading from one characters POV and I will miss him Yet I do hope that this author sticks with Greenland in his books Honestly it's really a character unto itself I've heard they have ferocious mosuitoes there Heck skeeters themselves are a skeery bunch Oh dear me Lame Lisa So lame Yes obviously I would recommend this book and author Also I've already looked for other books from Mr Norbo and none were yet translated but he is now on my radar and I'm ready for Update Just today checking on this author's website and it seems as though this may be the first book in a series Yippee Truly just imagine me as a 5 foot 7 120 pound leprechaunWell crap OK a Scottish American leprechaun? No dude Fuck that SHIT I ain't Irish Oh and ain't ain't a word and I ain't spose to say it Lolol Any who bring on the Danish dude who writes about Greenland Also I'm 55 nowI'm too adult to be clicking my heels Man that's just a big old fat lie I tried clicking my heels A few month's ago and I tripped myself up and landed on my noggin Seriously If Dan had been home and seen me I might have died from embarrassment Egads Age It's comical at times

    35 rounded up to 4 starsMatthew Cave is a journalist in Nuuk Greenland He is sent to the scene of a mummified body discovered on the desolate Greenland ice sheet After he sees the body and a news photographer take pictures they return to Nuuk The next day the policeman who was left to guard the body is found gruesomely murdered and the mummified body is gone Matthew soon realizes that the policeman's murder is similar to a series of unsolved murders in Greenland forty years earlier He starts investigating and the person he trusts the most is Tupaarna a woman recently released from prison for killing her family at the age of 14 Together they uncover a coverup of murder rape incest and The book alternates between two narratives one in 2014 and one in 1973 The 1973 narrative is based upon a diary of a policeman presumed dead He was investigating the murders and incest despite orders from superiors to stop investigating The book moved slowly in the first half while I tried to put all this together The murders are resolved and some of the abusers are exposed The description of the dead bodies is graphic enough that cozy mystery fans are not going to want to read this I have been to Nuuk and I enjoyed the description of NuukThanks to Text Publishing Company for sending me this book through NetGalley #TheGirlWithoutSkin #NetGalley


  6. Beata Beata says:

    The novel is a solid thriller set in Greenland and with two timelines A journalist gets involved in a mystery that has its roots 40 years earlier To me it was a decent read although I would like to warn future readers that there are some rather graphic descriptions and the child abuse in the centre of the story which is uite a sensitive issueMany thanks to Mads Peder Nordbo Text Publishing and Netgalley for ARC in exchange for my honest review


  7. Liz Liz says:

    I love mysteries that take place in new to me settings And Greenland definitely fits that bill Nordbo does a fabulous job of setting the scene so that I felt I could see everything in detail Matthew Cabe is a Danish reporter assigned to Greenland after the death of his pregnant wife in a car accident When a mummified Norseman is found in an ice crevice Matthew and his photographer are sent to report on it Overnight the photographer’s camera and files are stolen And the soldier guarding the mummified body is killed and the body stolen Matthew’s editor has him research similar murders that happened in 1973 and he is given the diary of the policeman that investigated those murders The book tells its story from the viewpoint of both Matthew and Jakob the original policeman Be prepared for gruesome scenes This is considered Scandinavian Noir and it is as dark as a Greenland winter It’s a fast paced book and kept me in its grips for its entirety I had no idea how it would play out I’m adding Nordbo to my list of authors to read again My thanks to netgalley and Text Publishing for an advance copy of this book

    Most impressive Outside the sun had set fire to the evening sky over Nuuk The orange light from the flaming clouds cast a glow so strong that it looked as if the living room walls were burning This book is full of writing like this Also the translation appeared seamless it felt flawless nothing felt like it didn't have its place or did not fit I did not know that there was such a thing as Nordic crime but I will keep an eye out for as I will this author who appears to have five other books to be readThis is a book full of gory content but it fit well and I was not bothered by it My dictionary got a great workout as did Google for all the cultural references and pronunciations Set in Greenland this is an area I know nothing about so it was a very interesting and brutal read A crime thriller set in freezing conditions with characters to love and ones to despise Very well written no holds barred dark bleak and tough Despite this bleakness I was engaged for every moment Very much recommended readingWith grateful thanks to the the Text Publishing team for my hard copy to read and review and for furnishing us with their generous Goodreads giveaways

  10. Phrynne Phrynne says:

    This one has a high body count If reading about people being murdered in very gruesome ways is not to your taste then you probably will not make it past the prologueThe Greenland setting makes a very atmospheric background to this first rate thriller Bodies are found in the ice blood stains the surrounding snow scarlet thick fogs help prevent people being found it all adds to the suspense Towards the end I thought the author might have included a few less bad guys and a few less deaths as I felt overloaded with it all Then we reached the end and it was great with several surprise twists and a tiny touch of romance to round things off All in all an excellent read but definitely not for the faint hearted Thanks to Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book
