This book is a Nordic mystery from Denmark. Katrine Engberg's debut introduces us to Jeppe Korner and Anette Werner, two police detectives from Copenhagen. A young woman is brutally murdered in her apartment. Korner and Werner discover a link to Julie Stender's murder which is Esther de Laurenti, her landlord, who is a budding novelist. Julie's murder is described in the unfinished novel Esther is writing. Is Esther the killer or another victim?
Katrina Engberg's writing is very good and translates well. I found the character of Jeppe Korner very interesting and flawed. I would buy book 2 just to find out more about his life. I did love the premise of Esther's book detailing the murder. There were plenty of twists that kept me guessing and the ending was surprising. I would highly recommend this book to those who love Nordic mystery. I would like to thank Gallery Scott Press and NetGalley for a free copy for an honest review.
