Description

Selected as a Most Anticipated title by People, Parade, Bustle, CrimeReads, She Reads, and more! An electrifying work of literary suspense from internationally bestselling author Katrine Engberg, The Tenant--heralded as a "stunning debut" by #1 New York Times bestselling author Kathy Reichs--follows two Copenhagen 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. Evocative and original, The Tenant promises "dark family secrets--and a smorgasbord of surprises" (People).
