She saves herself but loses two fingers due to severe cold-related injuries.

It was followed by a sequel, "". Stetko is sent back to Antartica by the government, as she is familar with the territory and there had been a mass murder. It turns out Russian mercernaries are on a rampage. Stetko and a rogue Russian intelligence officer must save the day.
