crime novel by Nina von Staffeldt
translated title: Frozen Evidence
A strange virus attacks the inhabitants of Sisimiut during the first weeks of summer. Furthermore, the new cruise terminal is expected finished by mid August – but will it be ready? On top of that more than just a couple of elderly people die. This all concerns the government whereas the press has a field day in a, normally, rather slow season. In Nuuk, Sika Haslund has started her new pr-job for Go Greenland, the country’s tourism and business development agency. After several years in Denmark, she has longed to return to Greenland where everything is the same, yet everything has changed; Sika needs to realise that she can’t escape her past.
Alongside the local journalist Thormod Gislasson, she is caught up with the story of the strange virus, which turns out to be something entirely different…
