Publisher's Summary

An electrifying work of literary suspense from international best-selling author Katrine Engberg, this stunning debut introduces two police detectives struggling to solve a shocking murder and stop a killer hell-bent on revenge.

When a young woman is discovered brutally murdered in her own apartment, with an intricate pattern of lines carved into her face, Copenhagen police detectives Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner are assigned to the case. In short order, they establish a link between the victim, Julie Stender, and her landlady, Esther de Laurenti, who’s a bit too fond of drink and the host of raucous dinner parties with her artist friends. Esther also turns out to be a budding novelist - and when Julie turns up as a murder victim in the still-unfinished mystery she’s writing, the link between fiction and real life grows both more urgent and more dangerous. 

But Esther’s role in this twisted scenario is not quite as clear as it first seems. Is she the culprit - or just another victim, trapped in a twisted game of vengeance? Anette and Jeppe must dig more deeply into the two women’s pasts to discover the identity of the brutal puppet-master pulling the strings in this electrifying literary thriller.

Hailed as “inconceivably thrilling” (Fyens Stiftstidende, Denmark), The Tenant is a work of stunning originality that will keep listeners on the edge of their seats.

This was flat as a carbonated drink left on the coffee table all
day. Search elsewhere for a good investment for a winter read.

Your Next Favorite Nordic Noir Thriller

I love Nordic Noir and this Danish debut didn’t disappoint. The story was captivating and suspenseful. In addition every character was fascinating and the vivid descriptions of Copenhagen had me googling the various locations in the story. Can’t wait to read Ms. Engberg’s next installment!
