A brand new thriller from #1 internationally bestselling crime author Jo Nesbo, which sees a charismatic young prisoner escaping jail to find out the truth about his father's death.
Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates at Oslo jail, and absolves them of their sins. Some people even whisper that Sonny is serving time for someone else: that he doesn't just listen, he confesses to their crimes. Inspector Simon Kefas is a dedicated police officer. Simon has worked for the Oslo police force for years. He's just been assigned a new murder investigation and a new partner, all on the same day. Both of them knew Sonny's father. To Sonny he was the man he idolised, to Kirk he was his best friend. Both were devastated when his corruption was revealed. But neither of them knew the truth.

One of his best, we need more author like Jo Nesbo
Not a mystery
Not what I expected from this book after I chose it based on recommendations from the CBC mystery panel. This is not a mystery. It is a fairly predictable, formulaic thriller brimming with one-dimensional psychopathic characters. I got to the end because I forked out the money for it, but it was a chore to get through. Would not recommend.
