BY EDDIE THOMAS PETERSEN
Middle-aged Senior Bank Clerk Lennart Bygholm Nielsen gets his world turned upside down, when he decides to rent out a room in his home. Encountering his new lodger, 24-year-old Ukrainian Natasja, causes him to experience a world, he has never known before.
One day the Criminal Investigation Department rings Lennart’s door bell, and his new life abruptly comes to a halt. Natasja has disappeared. The police fears, that she has been murdered. And who would be a more obvious suspect, than her middle- aged male landlord?
Lennart resists the accusations, but nds himself accidentally digging the hole deeper and deeper. And what is it that Lennart cannot remember? What is he hiding from his recent birding excursion to Sweden? And what was the actual relationship between Lennart and his young tenant?
Room for Rent is an intense description of the lonely wolf in modern society. The man who keeps to himself and has his own preferences and his own secrets. Secrets, which reveal themselves slowly but inevitably to the reader through descriptions, small hints and suggestions.
