The Tenant – Staff Review – Maddy

The Tenant by Katherine Engberg

In Copenhagen, Denmark, a young woman, Julie Stender, is  murdered in her apartment by a killer who drew intricate patterns on her face.The crime is eerily similar to a scene in the manuscript written by the victim’s landlady, who is trying to publish her first book. 
Detectives Korner and Werner are unsure if Ester de Laurenti is a suspect in this murder investigation, or a pawn in a larger game of revenge the police have yet to fully understand. The detectives must act quickly to solve the case before another person is harmed. 
The Tenant started off a little slow, but gradually picked up as the story went on. I liked the changing plot twists as the author kept readers guessing about who the killer was and where the story would lead. 

3 stars.
