Guilty. One word on a beggar's cardboard sign. And now he is dead, stabbed in a wintry Copenhagen street, the second homeless victim in as many weeks. Dagbladet reporter Jensen, stumbling across the body on her way to work, calls her ex lover DI Henrik Jungersen. As, inevitably, old passions are rekindled, so are old regrets, and that is just the start of Jensen's troubles. The front page is an open goal, but nothing feels right..... When a third body turns up, it seems certain that a serial killer is on the loose. But why pick on the homeless? And is the link to an old murder case just a coincidence? With her teenage apprentice Gustav, Jensen soon finds herself putting everything on the line to discover exactly who is guilty ...

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Heidi Amsinck - unlike so many authors today - does not waffle. My Name is Jensen is streamlined Scandi sleuthing and comprises a more than promising debut'. Mark Sanderson The Times.'"My name is Jensen" is a brilliant debut and the author in full possession of the crime writing craft. Heidi Amsinck is hopefully here to stay." Yrsa Sigurdardottir. 'A nice slice of creepy Scandi-noir' Daily Mail. 'Eerie unnerving stories, in equal measure charming and charming' Will Dean on Last Train to Helsingor. 'Intriguing and hypnotically readable'. Andrew Taylor. 'This character driven, Scandi-Noir thriller has style, atmosphere and charisma by the sled-load..a gripping, twisty treat for fans of chic, gutsy thrillers..one hopes this setting and intriguing character feature in future novels'. Joanne Owen Love Reading. 'A thoroughly enjoyable Scandi Noir novel with great characters and a clever, twisty and propulsive plot' Mary Picken. 'A brilliantly compelling debut..and example of Nordic Noir at its finest. Simply put I adored this book' BooksbyBindu

“A snowy Copenhagen.”
