First published in 1992, Smilla's Sense of Snow instantly became an international sensation. When caustic Smilla Jaspersen discovers that her neighbor---a neglected six-year-old boy, and possibly her only friend---has died in a tragic accident, a peculiar intuition tells her it was murder. Unpredictable to the last page, Smilla's Sense of Snow is one of the most beautifully written and original crime stories of our time, a new classic.

Reviews

Praise for Smilla's Sense of Snow

“Splendid entertainment . . . the suspense novel as exploration of the heart.” —The New York Times Book Review

“A book of profound intelligence . . . In the league of Melville or Conrad. Hoeg writes prose that is as bitter, changeable and deep-fathomed as poetry. . . . Demands to be read aloud and savored.” —The New Yorker

“Like John le Carré and Graham Greene before him, Peter Høeg has given a thriller moral and political resonance.” —Los Angeles Times

“A considerable achievement, a riveting suspense tale.” —The Wall Street Journal
