In this atmospheric mystery, eleven-year-old Smilla Jonsson is sent to Denmark to stay with her Norwegian relatives during the winter. As soon as she arrives, she realizes that somebody has left her a snowman in the yard. But when she approaches it, it disappears. Could the snowman have been an omen of Smilla's future? As she digs deeper into the mystery, she uncovers a chilling plot involving a mad scientist, a missing child, and a snowstorm that may be more lethal than anyone knows.
