For some reason, I'm a sucker for books (few as they are) set in Greenland and Iceland. I find the idea that people actually live, hunt, work, etc. in such inhospitable climates fascinating. This glimpse of Icelandic culture was originally published in Danish, years ago, but the English translation flows pretty well and the storyline is captivating. Hopefully looking forward to translation of the next 3 volumes!
