Konstantin and Clara Finø have disappeared. Again. This time, two years after the first disappearance, their children --- 19-year-old Hans, 16-year-old Tilte and 14-year-old Peter --- are determined to find them, thus stopping a major crime and, quite possibly, coming to understand the meaning of life at the same time. Danish writer Peter Høeg’s latest, THE ELEPHANT KEEPERS’ CHILDREN, is very different from SMILLA’S SENSE OF SNOW, which made him internationally famous. But it’s just as interesting.
