Description:
A prize winning European bestseller: a gorgeous, strange, dark-edged novel of animal impulses and violent passions - of men at their very worst and their very best.

Idealistic, misguided Morten Falck is a newly ordained priest sailing to Greenland in 1787 to convert the Inuit to the Danish church. A rugged outpost battered by harsh winters, Sukkertoppen is overshadowed by the threat of dissent; natives from neighboring villages have united to reject Danish rule and establish their own settlement atop Eternal Fjord.

As Falck becomes involved with those in his care -- his ambitious catechist, a lonely trader's wife, and a fatalistic widow he comes to love -- his faith and reputation are dangerously called into question.
