About the book
One snowy day in Copenhagen, six-year-old Isaiah falls to his death from a city rooftop.The police pronounce it an accident. But Isaiah’s neighbour, Smilla, an expert in the ways of snow and ice, suspects murder. She embarks on a dangerous quest to find the truth, following a path of clues as clear to her as footsteps in the snow.
Reviewed by Entre- nous Reading group:
Very mixed reviews. Not an easy book to read and understand – but very good if you like snow and ice. Smilla is not a very sympathetic character. Questionable whether the author can write wholly from a woman’s point of view.
