The Girl Without Skin: #bookreview

The Girl Without Skin by Mads Peder Nordbo. Amazon affiliate link

The Girl Without Skin is a murder mystery set in Greenland. It begins with journalist Matthew Cave investigating the discovery of a mummified Viking body.

If you do not like murder mysteries with gruesome crimes – murder, child abuse, and sexual assault- then this may not be the book for you. I would have also liked the book if it was actually about studying the Viking mummy and where he came from. Greenland has different cultural influences – Danish and Inuit

So the Viking mummy case was put on hold due to the murder of the police officer guarding the body. While Matthew was waiting for permission to publish the article, someone tells him to look into an old cold case from the 1970s. The case involves four men who were murdered and also were probably abusing their daughters.

The title refers to one of the main characters,
Tupaarnaq. She served time in prison for killing her parents and sisters. By the time she was released, Tupaarnaq was covered in tattoos. Her name means “wild thyme.”

It really is a good book, even with all of the gruesomeness. Honestly, there were so many twists at the end that I never saw coming.

  • I received this ebook from NetGalley. All opinions are my own. Obviously.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. It’s almost impossible, in my opinion, to pass by a book with a title like that. Classic !
