"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 readers on the edge of their seats"--… (mer)

I really enjoyed this one. I found it to be an original idea and a great start to a series. The story involves a landlady and her tenants, of which one young lady is brutally murdered and an intricate pattern has been carved on her face. The two detectives assigned to the case must investigate everyone and their mother, but seem to keep coming back to the same few suspects. It is then revealed that the landlady is writing a book, and the young ladies murder mimics the murder the landlady had written about two weeks prior. It then comes down to figuring out who had read that part of her book.
I found this to be a well written and hard to put down “whodunnit”. I kept going back-and-forth between the suspects myself and I must admit I never really quite nailed it. ( )

The Tenant. Katrine Engberg. 2016. This is the first of a police procedural set in Copenhagen. Police detectives Anette Werner and Jeppe Karner are assigned work on the gruesome murder of Julie Stender, an attractive young woman whose body is discovered in her apartment, with her face is covered with a complicated pattern of lines made when she was alive. When the landlady reveals that the method of Julie’s murder is the same as the plot of an unpublished novel she is working on, the detectives add this complication to the mysterious murder. In addition to working on the murder, Karner is recovering from a recent divorce. This was a complicated and interesting plot, and I enjoyed reading about Copenhagen, but I was not immediately attracted to the detectives. ( )

The premise of The Tenant by Katrine Engberg drew me in immediately, as it sounded exactly like the dark and twisty stories I love, with a gruesome murder, people with secrets, and a flawed but honest detective. Those elements were all present, but this one just wasn’t a big hit for me. It felt like there were really great ideas in it, but they got kind of lost beneath explorations of the lead detectives less than stellar personal life, and way too many weird asides about his penis. I know more about his penis than I ever needed to know about anyone’s.

I still consider this a 3-star read, because the good parts were so good, and so well written. I also took into consideration that the issue might not be the writing/story, but the translation. Sometimes things just get lost or just don’t translate well. The parts of the book focusing on the murder(s)/investigation were really amazing; the other sections just didn’t seem necessary to me.

I received a free e-copy of The Tenant from NetGalley and Gallery in exchange for my review. ( )

Please note that I received this book via NetGalley. This did not affect my rating or review.

So this was a really good thriller. I have never read a book taking place in Denmark before. Or at least I don't think I have. It was interesting to see how the partners in this book (Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner) deal with the murder of a young woman and then the twists and turns the murder case takes. We do get to see more of Jeppe in this one, or least his emotional state. The main reason why I didn't give this five stars though is that I wish that we had gotten to see Anette's home life. We hear how happy she is with her husband via Jeppe or her from now and then. Engberg chooses to delve more into Jeppe and his emotional state after the divorce from his wife. I definitely would like to read more about these two in the future.

"The Tenant" follows Danish detectives, Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner. Jeppe has been out on medical leave while also mourning the end of his marriage. His first day back though he and Anette are called into a brutal murder scene. The young woman, Julie Stender's life seems to be a mystery until the detectives realize that Julie's murder may have links to a mystery writer's group.

Jeppe we find is mourning his ex-wife and their marriage. I ended up feeling pity for him though Engberg gives us enough clues that he may be interested in someone that he works alongside. Anette is blunt, but does what she has to in order to not only back up Jeppe, but to solve Julie's murder. The two of them work well together, they are definitely opposites and seem to know what buttons to push on each other as well as when to not take offense about things.

Engberg also introduces others who work with Jeppe and Werner as well. The way the detectives are set up it seems as if everyone is the same rank, but each of them take turns in being leads. I do hope in the next book we get to see Werner in charge as well as her home life.

We also get a different insight into Julie via her landlady, Esther de Laurenti, who has quit her university job in order to pursue her dream of being a murder mystery writer. Esther's points of views I thought were good. We get a different sense from her about the loss of dreams, and regrets that she has over things that occurred when she was younger. We have her fearing she has inadvertently caused someone to seek out Julie to kill her and the wonder of why someone would.

The writing was really good though there were a few translation issues here or there. Not enough to take me out of the story. Engberg does a great job with keeping you guessing about the murderer and why they killed Julie. I thought it was a great reveal that we slowly got and the ending to the case was a shocker.

The flow works with the book bouncing back and forth between Jeppe, Werner, the landlady of the building that Julie lived in, and another detective working with Jeppe and Werner.

The book takes place in Copenhagen and besides reading about some of the bars/food that Jeppe and Werner eat, I still wanted to get more of sense of the city.


The ending leaves things on a slightly okay note with Jeppe, but once again, we don't get any insight into Anette. ( )

The Tenant is a debut novel by the Danish crime writer Katrine Engberg. It was originally published in 2016 but the English translation is from 2020. There are currently 3 other books in the series, not of them translated yet: Blood Moon 2017; Butterfly House 2018; and Sharp Bullets 2019.

Esther de Laurenti live on the third floor of the building she owns and grew up in. She rents out the lower two floors. Julie Stendahl, aged 20 and very pretty occupies the ground floor. Gregers Hermansen, old and frail, occupies the second floor.

On the morning of August 8, after a restless night sleeping on his recliner, Gregers slowly descends the stairs to throw out his garbage. He notices Julie's door is open. He shuffles in to look and trips over something. As he tries to get up, which can't do, he realizes he is lying on something...which turns out to be a leg...Julie's leg.

As he rolls over, he sees Julie's battered and bloodied body and he screams. Eventually he is rescued.

Jeppe Kerner and Anette Werner are the detectives assigned to the case. `

As if Julie's murder wasn't bizarre enough with its brutality and carvings on her face, it is made more eerie by the fact that it mimics the murder in the initial pages of the mystery novel Esther is working on.

Jeppe and Anette are baffled because there are no clues, no fingerprints, no clothing fibers, no forensic evidence to identify a murderer. But soon, however, as Julie's seemingly idyllic life reveals the turmoil underneath, suspects abound.

Jeppe and Anette are contrasting characters, Jeppe being newly divorced and rail thin and Anette happily married and well developed. He is overly tidy and she no so much. They are a good team, aided by a quirky variety of other officers.

This police procedural with bits of gentle humor thrown into the investigation will delight fans of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch, Archer Mayor's Joe Gunther, Val McDermid and Denise Mina.

The Tenant is a great start to a series and I can't wait for the next book to be translated. ( )

Engberg is excellent at building character and she builds suspense at the same time. The plotline is solid police work, as hallmark of good Danish crime fiction, and the dig for clues. While the police work will remind readers of Jo Nesbo, the cultural milieu is far closer to the elegant novels of Peter Hoeg or Department Q ( Jussi Adler Olsen) books. Very Danish. Very good.

Danske Katrine Engbergs frodige og besnærende krimdebut, viser en forfatter det skal bli spennende å følge videre.
Det er alltid deilig når det kommer en krimdebutant som skriver sikkert, frisk og lekent, og har skapt interessante og fargerike karakterer. Plusser man på et sammensatt plot med frodige kulisser, har man en krim det er vel verdt å lese
