"Wen will der Eigentümer?"

Howcome a possible answer isnt "Who wants the owner?"

The owner is the subject in this sentence, marked by the article "der", masculine nominative. The subject is performing the action. The object of the sentence, whom the action is performed upon, is the unspecified persons behind "Wen", which is accusative of "wer".

Wouldn't that be 'whom'? At least your translation would mean something else from my understanding.
