  5. 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 Scandi 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 w...

The premise of the Tenant had me hooked But, unfortunately I struggled so much with this book I struggled with the writing. and am not sure if it was translation issues but I found the book to be extremely boring I found the pacing slow, characters flat, and the mystery lacking I had high expectations for this one and had high hopes but it just was lacking so much for me I think there are wayyyy to many mystery police procedural thrillers out there that are so similar but change character The premise of the Tenant had me hooked But, unfortunately I struggled so much with this book I struggled with the writing. and am not sure if it was translation issues but I found the book to be extremely boring I found the pacing slow, characters flat, and the mystery lacking I had high expectations for this one and had high hopes but it just was lacking so much for me I think there are wa...

  10. An enjoyable but slow read It could have been a bit shorter.A young girls body is found in her apartment She has been stabbed and her face has been carved into intricate lines.The murder is committed very much like the one written by the victims landlady in which the fictional victim is based on the actual one A composed scenario has become a reality.Who is this killer the media calls The Knife Monster Why has he targeted the young tenant And is there going to bebloodshed An enjoyable but slow read It could have been a bit shorter.A young girl s body is found in her apartment She has been stabbed and her face has been carved into intricate lines.The murder is committed very much like the one written by the victim s landlady in which the fictional victim is based on the actual one A compose...
