The son

The author of the best-selling Harry Hole series now gives us an electrifying stand-alone novel set inside Oslo?s maze of especially venal, high-level corruption. ? Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man. Sonny?s been in prison for a dozen years, nearly half his life. The inmates who seek out his uncanny abilities to soothe leave his cell feeling absolved. They don?t know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habit?or where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply of the drug. Or that he?s serving time for other peoples? crimes. ??????????? Sonny took the first steps toward addiction when his father took his own life rather than face exposure as a corrupt cop. Now Sonny is the seemingly malleable center of a whole infrastructure of corruption: prison staff, police, lawyers, a desperate priest?all of them focused on keeping him high and in jail. And all of them under the thumb of the Twin, Oslo?s crime overlord. As long as Sonny gets his dope, he?s happy to play the criminal and the prison?s in-house savior. But when he learns a stunning, long-hidden secret concerning his father, he makes a brilliantly executed escape from prison?and from the person he?d let himself become?and begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him . . . The darkly looming question is: Who will get to him first?the criminals or the cops? From the Hardcover edition.

  • "Sonny ist auf der Flucht Sonny Lofthus sitzt im modernen Hochsicherheitsgefängnis Staten in Oslo. Seine kriminelle Karriere begann, als sein Vater Ab sich das Leben nahm. Ab Lofthus war Polizist. Kurz vor seinem Tod gestand er, korrupt gewesen zu sein. Dieser Verrat zerstörte Sonnys Leben. Jetzt, viele Jahre später, hört er von einem Mitgefangenen, dass alles ganz anders gewesen ist. Sonny will Rache. Er flieht aus dem Gefängnis, denn die Verantwortlichen sollen für ihre Verbrechen büssen. Jo Nesbøs Krimiserie um Kommissar Harry Hole ist weltweit ein Hit. Auch mit Der Sohn stieg er in Norwegen, England, Dänemark und den Vereinigten Staaten ganz oben in der Bestsellerliste ein. Sein neuer grosser Kriminalroman ist ein elektrisierendes Drama um Geheimnis und Sünde, Verrat und Rache, Gerechtigkeit und Erlösung."

  • "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 Simon he was his best friend. Both were left devastated when his corruption was revealed.

  • "This novel is set amid Oslo's hierarchy of corruption, from which one very unusual young man is about to propel himself into a mission of brutal revenge. Sonny Lofthus, in his early thirties, has been in prison for the last dozen years: serving time for crimes he didn't commit. In exchange, he gets an uninterrupted supply of heroin, and the unexpected stream of fellow prisoners seeking out his uncanny abilities to soothe and absolve. His addiction started when his father committed suicide rather than be exposed as a corrupt cop, and 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, and all of them under the thumb of Oslo's crime overlord, the Twin. When Sonny learns some long-hidden truths about his father he makes a brilliant escape, and begins hunting down the people responsible for the hideous crimes he has paid for. But he is also being hunted, by the Twin, the cops, and the only person who knows the ultimate truth that Sonny is seeking. The question is, what will he do when they have cornered him?"@en
