The Criminal Element description

Mads Peder Nordbo’s The Girl Without Skin is both compelling crime fiction and a marvellous evocation of the stark beauty of Greenland. The dusty aridity of the Australian bush in Chris Hammer’s Scrublands could not be further removed from Nordbo’s icy setting but it too is pivotal to the story. Isolation, ratcheting tension and charismatic journalists investigating old crimes are common to both these compulsively readable murder mysteries.

Chair: Victoria Purman
