In the remote Arctic community of Inussuk, seven graves are dug at the end of each summer, before the ground freezes. As winter approaches, the question is, will they be enough?
When Constable David Maratse is invalided off the force, he moves to a small settlement to live the life of a subsistence hunter and fisherman. But when his long line hooks the body of a politician’s daughter, he finds himself both prime suspect and lead investigator in Greenland’s most sensational murder case.
Seven Graves, One Winter is the first full novel featuring Greenlandic Police Constable David Maratse.
The Greenland Crime series continues with Blood Floe and We Shall Be Monsters.
