The Apartment is a well written psychological thriller that I thoroughly enjoyed. We follow Freya, a down-on-her-luck mother who is in desperate need of a new place to live when an apartment in a decadent mansion is suddenly presented to her. The mansion's owners are more concerned with having the right people living there instead of money so even though it seems too good to be true, Freya moves her and her daughter in immediately. It's a beautiful house but soon Freya is hearing things, her daughter seems unhappy, and the other residents of the house are strange. This is a definite thriller with you wondering what's going to happen next and all but screaming at the main character to take her daughter and run. My only complaint is that I felt Freya acted a little unrealistically at first to make the plot work. It quickly got better though and I didn't see that ending coming!
