The Tenant has been murdered. She was murdered in exactly the same fashion as described in the building owner’s crime novel. The Copenhagen police are working round the clock to discover the perpetrator, but are finding it difficult when there doesn’t seem to be a motive and everyone involved is suspicious. Time is running out and the bodies are starting to pile up. Why would anyone murder Julie Stender and in such a heinous manner? Esther de Laurenti is going to learn the hard way that you have to be careful what you write. You never know who might be reading.
The outline of the plot was what drew me in, but once I got into it was a bit anti-climactic. There were way too many characters so that it was hard to get a good feel for any of them. I could not really tell whom the story was supposed to be about. It switched viewpoints often and sometimes to minor characters. I think Saidani was the most likable and she was rarely the focus. The story was not very suspenseful and the villains stood out from the get-go. It did have a similar feel to Tana French stories but was less dark. Overall, it wasn’t the worst book I ever read and the plot idea was interesting, but I probably wouldn’t read it again.
