From the publisher:
Sonny Lofthus has been in prison for almost half his life: serving time for crimes he didn’t commit. In exchange, he gets an uninterrupted supply of heroin—and a stream of fellow prisoners seeking out his Buddha-like absolution. Years earlier Sonny’s father, a corrupt cop, took his own life rather than face exposure. Now Sonny is the center of a vortex of corruption: prison staff, police, lawyers, a desperate priest—all of them focused on keeping him stoned and jailed. When Sonny discovers a shocking truth about his father’s suicide, he makes a brilliant escape and begins hunting down the people responsible for his and his father’s demise. But he’s also being hunted, and by enemies too many to count. Two questions remain: who will get to him first, and what will he do when he’s cornered?
THIS BOOK! If you like crime fiction and police procedurals, you must read this book. Intricate storytelling and a total thrill ride – Nordic Noir at it’s best. I absolutely love Sonny and would love to see this character again. The last few lines are crazy and make me wonder if a sequel is in the works. I can’t wait to read more Nesbø and dig into the Harry Hole series!
