-- Kathy Reichs, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“What a fantastic debut! I love the characters, the sparkling prose, and the depiction of Copenhagen. Katrine Engberg is an absolute star!” -- Camilla Läckberg, #1 internationally bestselling author
“Engberg's fast-paced narrative is bolstered by an interesting and quirky cast as well as an intriguing setting . . . a lot of fun.”, Kirkus Reviews
“Everyone has secrets, and some secrets are lies. Engberg's debut novel, a sleeper hit in her native Denmark, is sure to attract comparisons to other Scandinavian thrillers… layered, character-driven suspense from authors including Erin Kelly and Ruth Ware may prove to be more apt read-alike suggestions.”, Booklist
"Fast-moving . . . Engberg’s sparkling cast and palpable evocation of a society U.S. readers will find similar yet foreign keep the pages turning pleasurably.", Publishers Weekly
"Engberg’s debut features dark family secrets—and a smorgasbord of surprises.”, People
"[A] gripping addition to the Scandinavian crime fiction pantheon.", OprahMag.com
"The careful plotting ensures that the mystery unfolds deliberately, with surprises constantly woven into the narrative . . . Engberg’s English language debut promises a gritty, unflinching procedural series, and will leave readers craving the translation of Kørner and Werner’s next adventure.” , BookPage
"Winter wouldn't be complete without a great Nordic Noir novel, and that's exactly what Katrine Engberg's The Tenant is.”, Bustle
"It’s hard to believe this is her [Engberg's] first book, so assured is the writing. Her characters are fully realized...[and] the story is as complex as the characters. Originally published in Denmark in 2016, The Tenant is Engberg’s first book to be translated into English, but it’s unlikely to be the last.", Air Mail
About the Author
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It was grim and the main character was not exactly relatable. The rest of the characters were just dark and confusing. I still couldn't understand why some of the perpetrators did what they did. It was all a bit much.
Not exactly creative to merit all the fanfare.
The plot was very thin and only by doling out relatively obvious developments did it keep from being totally transparent from the start. There was precious little organic character development. Both the plot and the characters lurched along haphazardly. It was almost as if the author were writing while I was reading and could barely stay ahead.
There was no character about whom I cared for particularly or for whom I had much empathy.
If Michael Connolly's mystery writing is the gold standard, this author is not on the periodic table.
