Christoffer Petersen is a prolific writer with novels, novellas, and short stories in several genres. However, before becoming a full-time writer, Christoffer Petersen was a teacher and he spent seven of those teaching years in Greenland. This land and its people greatly influenced his writings and it is no coincidence that he has several book series set there. Through fictional stories, he aims to show a world unknown to most people: the way of life of Greenland and the ways of being a Greenlander.
At the moment, Book 3 of the “Greenland Crime” series is being translated by ACPN. “Seremos Monstros” [original title “We Shall Be Monsters” ] will be published in the autumn of 2022. Book 1, “Um Inverno, Sete Sepulturas” [original title “Seven Graves, One Winter” ], and Book 2, “À Flor das Águas” [original title “Blood Floe” ], were published in Portugal by Quetzal.

The Greenland Trilogy
This is the first ever book written by Christoffer Petersen and is Book 1 of “The Greenland Trilogy” series . Fenna Brongaard is the first woman admitted in the SIRIUS patrol. They have a tough job: patrolling the ice with a sledge pulled by dogs. During several weeks, they have to camp on the ice under temperatures way below zero and progress sometimes through wild artic storms. Fenna Brongaard is on her first year in the patrol and is already tasked with a secret mission. But nothing is what it seems and she has to figure things out as she goes and everything is always changing. Will she survive? Can she uncover all that is hidden? And what is The Ice Star? As the story goes, readers feel they live the action beside Fenna Brongaard – and there is action in every page.
