When a young Greenlandic boy is reported missing almost 12 months to the day he disappeared, newly trained Police Constable Petra Jensen travels to the far north of Greenland to find him.
The Boy with the Narwhal Tooth is the first in a new series of Greenland Missing Persons novellas set in the harsh, unpredictable Arctic, rich in tradition, myth and culture.
‘A sharp new angle on Nordic crime fiction.’ – Quentin Bates
The Boy with the Narwhal Tooth introduces many new and interesting characters, together with a few familiar faces making cameo appearances in the series.
The Greenland Missing Persons stories are set prior to The Ice Star and Seven Graves, One Winter.

While The Ice Star got the engines going, and Seven Graves, One Winter shifted my writing career into a higher gear, Petra and the The Boy with the Narwhal Tooth have shoved a brick onto the gas pedal! Sure, it’s a steady acceleration, which – spoiler alert – would be too slow for Luui, but there’s some serious progress here. I’m almost embarrassed to say that the idea came from a rather expensive trip to the supermarket during lockdown, when driving on an empty highway, the idea just popped into my head.
Petra already dealt with missing persons when I wrote her into Seven Graves, One Winter, but where Tuukula, the shaman, and his five-year-old daughter Luui came from, I don’t know. Atii Napa is another matter. If you’ve read Seven Graves, One Winter, then you’ve already met her. If you haven’t, and you do read Seven Graves, One Winter, then you might wrinkle your brow a little, just like Petra.
I’m having fun with the Greenland Missing Persons stories. There are more on the way!
