Content descriptions

Summary: In this bestselling novel, which was the basis for a 1997 movie of the same name, Smilla Qaavigaaq Jasperson, an expert on snow and ice, investigates the mystery behind her six-year-old neighbor's deadly fall from the top of their Copenhagen apartment building. The boy was terribly afraid of heights yet his snowy footprints indicate he was running when he fell--so who or what was he running from? Smilla's Sense of Snow, translated from a 1992 Danish work, is "a wonderfully original, elegantly crafted, ominously savage story" (Booklist), and is sure to please readers who enjoy well-written, suspenseful tales.
