When a mummified Viking corpse is discovered in a crevasse out on the edge of an ice sheet, journalist Matthew Cave is sent to cover the story. The next day the mummy is gone, and the body of the policeman who was keeping watch is found naked and flayed - exactly like the victims in a gruesome series of murders that terrified the remote town of Nuuk in the 1970s.

As Matt investigates, he is shocked by the deprivation and brutal violence the locals take for granted. Unable to trust the police, he begins to suspect a cover-up. It's only when he meets a young Inuit woman, Tupaarnaq, convicted of killing her parents and two small sisters, that Matt starts to realise how deep this story goes - and how much danger he is in.

`This intricate crime novel is incredibly thrilling, and offers some genuine surprises.' * Finals Krimiside *
`The plot is gruesome, believable and incredibly tense.' * Bogfidusen *
`Mads Peder Nordbo has written a macabre but engrossing Arctic crime novel about incest and corruption.' * Jyllands-Posten *
`Lucky Nordbo has given his main character a troubled past, which makes it plausible that he would fling himself fearlessly into investigating the older killings that breath new life-and death-into a corrupt political present.' * Borsen *
`Mads Peder Nordbo writes with great insight into the environment of Greenland, in which the nearly unbearable events play out.' * Jysk Fynske Medier *
`The Girl Without Skin is large parts a classical crime combined with a thriller's intensity-but just as much social criticism.' * VG Norway *
`The Girl Without Skin has everything the heart of a true crime fan could desire. Murder, eeriness, shivers, superstition, terrible secrets - but at the same time you can feel the author's affection for Greenland.' * Krimifan *
