My Review of My Name is Jensen by Heidi Amsinck

I’ve just finished reading My Name is Jensen by Heidi Amsinck and think (hope) Jensen could be the new book character I follow for the next decade.

Although I do read stand alone books I’ve a tendency to read books where it is the same main character; Harry Bosch, Evan Smoak (Orphan X), Myron Bolitar & Win, Vianne Rocher, Eddie Flynn, Roy Straitley, etc. and it now looks like Jensen may be the next character I follow (assuming Heidi Amsinck writes more Jensen books).

The thing about My name is Jensen is it’s not just Jensen I want to know more about, there are a number of great characters who I’m dying to find out more about, and a great storyline to go with those characters too.

Jensen (Surname, who’s embarrassing Christian name is as yet unknown) is a mid 30’s female journalist who we hear broke a big story nearly 20 years ago, has spent a number of years in London as the foreign correspondent, but is now back in her home town of Copenhagen working for the newspaper Dagbladet.

Whilst cycling through a snowy Copenhagen she stumbles across the body of a young street beggar with the word Guilty written on a cardboard sign on his chest. She then calls an ex lover DI Henrik Jungersen where old passions are rekindled.

The body has multiple stab wounds and is linked to a previous murder in similar circumstances 2 weeks previously and when a 3rd murder occurs later it seems a serial killer may be on the loose.

Although Jensen shouldn’t be on the case for Dagbladet, the fact she discovered the body leads to her putting everything on the line to find out just who is innocent or Guilty…

My Name is Jensen really is a great book

Publishers Description
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…
