Greenland, circa 2015. Three women are found murdered in the capital city Nuuk.
Ongoing issues in the country involving the desire for independence from the
Kingdom of Denmark are redirected with race and gender recoloring the
overall picture, as the mystery unravels in graphic detail.
An intertwined story of corruption, greed, domination and sovereignty reveals
itself through the discoveries of three investigators–Russian, Chinese, and a Danish
Greenlander. The politics at hand are reenacted in the very act of investigating the
murders, revealing the Inuit of Greenland as the true and only victims of this crime.
Nauja Lynge’s novel is a call for temperance in the Greenlandic rush for independence.
The stakes involved, while potentially able to finance this sovereignty, come at a large cost.
Now is the time for careful deliberation, Lynge argues. Greenlanders will be independent,
even if within the existing structure of the Kingdom, but this can not come at the
expense of the land or the culture. Education, sharing of information, community
involvement and patience will guide us into a free, self sustaining state.
