    I m growing very fond of Nordic noir and can add The Tenant to the list of such books that I ve read in the last year or so Now that I ve read it, I wish I could read the next three books in this series but from what I can tell, they haven t been translated into English so I won t be able to follow detectives Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner further along in their careers We don t really get to know Anette very well but we get to be in Jeppe s head, as the lead detective on a murder case, just s I m growing ver

    Quite disappointing for me I finished it like two weeks ago, and if you asked me what I remember, I d reply that not that much A young woman is brutally murdered and the investigation by two Danish detectives begins The motif behind the murder is interesting, however, getting to the heart of the mystery was not exciting No thrill, no tension, nothing I just wanted to finish this book and return it to the OverDrive I hope it will be a winner for other readers.

    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,
