I got to fill in some sad gaps in my consumption of books written in the 80s and 90s and early Oughts. Also a thriller, Peter Hoeg's SMILLA'S SENSE OF SNOW made me actively angry, it was so good. Set in Copenhagen and Greenland, with rich and transportive writing, this book stars another interesting, difficult woman. It is notable how much of this story's suspense would have been killed by the presence of cell phones.
