My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I have to admit when I started this book I wasn’t sure if I was going to enjoy it. However, after the first chapter – I got sucked right into it.
The novel starts with the murder of a young girl, followed by another murder of her friend. Copenhagen detectives Korner and Werner were assigned to resolve the mystery of the double murder, and the more they looked into the past of the young girl – the more twisted it became: young pregnancy, affairs with older men, and more murders.
And the frightening (and in my opinion the best) part of it all – the murder was written a month before the victim’s death by her very own landlady. Shocker, I know! This little twist spiced up the storyline.
This book held my interest from beginning to end. I had a few issues along the way with the characters and plot, but none of those issues were enough to ruin the reading experience. Thank you, NetGalley and Gallery/Scout Press publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
