    2.5 Stars I wish to thank NetGalley and Simon Schuster for the opportunity to read this ARC in return for an honest review I often enjoy Nordic Noir crime stories, but I am sorry to say this one failed to resonate with me I found it slow and the language flat I was not feeling any sense of excitement or suspense These ingredients were present in the plot, but the thrills I expected to feel were absent for me The plot was complicated and well thought out with a variety of suspects, 2.5 Stars I wish to thank NetGalley and Simon Schuster for the ...

    I was disappointed in this Katrine Engberg writes very well and the prose flows perfectly, so I m assuming the translation is very good The weakness is the plot I didn t like the mystery Opening up with a young torture murder victim who has had deep decorative lines carved into her face while she was still alive promises great Scandy noir stuff ahead But it didn t play out that way Without spoiling anything, the story is all over the place and the book lacks suspense I want to be glued to I was disappointed in this Katrine Engberg writes very well and the prose flows perfectly, so I m assuming the translation is very good The weakness is the plot I didn t like the mystery Opening up with a young torture murder victim who has had deep decorative lines carved into her face while she was still alive promises great Scandy noir stuff ahead But it didn t play out that way Without spoiling anything, the story is all over the place and the book lacks suspense I want to be glued to a mystery it took me a while to read this I wanted Scandy darkness,cohesion and clarity, better characters and higher stakes.The best part of the book for me is the main character, lead detective Jeppe Korner, who is very well written Unlike the ones involved in the mystery, he s two dimensional His partner, Annette Werne...

    The Tenant is coming to the US in January 2020 and I see fans of Lars Kepler and Joe Nesbo fawning over this nordic noir crime fiction novel What starts out as a standard murder mystery, the story begins to unfold drastically to provide an over the top, yet definitely enjoyable, sinister master plot I read this e book during my commute home f...
