New York: Grand Central Publishing, 2018. SIGNED first edition - The first book in a new series by this award winning author - "Already widowed by the age of forty, Ilka Nichols Jensen, a school portrait photographer, leads a modest, regimented, and uneventful life in Copenhagen. Until unexpected news rocks her quiet existence: Her father - who walked out suddenly and inexplicably on the family more than three decades ago - has died. And he's left her something in his will: his funeral home. In Racine, Wisconsin.. . Desperate for a connection to the parent she never really knew, she plans to visit the funeral home and go through her father's things - hoping for some insight into his new life in America - before preparing the business for a quick sale. But when she stumbles on an unsolved murder, and a killer who seems to still be very much alive, the undertaker's daughter realizes she might be in over her head." SIGNED on title page. Translated from the Danish by Mark Kline. 324 pp.
