Forty Days Without Shadow

An Arctic Thriller

The international award-winning, bestselling phenomenon, now available in English for the first time.

Klemet Nango, an experienced Sami officer, and Nina Nansen, his much younger partner from the south of Norway, must find the perpetrators before it’s too late…
