Blurb: SONNY’S ON THE RUN. Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates, and absolves them of their sins. HE’S BEEN LIED TO HIS WHOLE LIFE. But then one prisoner’s confession changes everything. He knows something about Sonny’s disgraced father. SONNY WANTS REVENGE. He needs to break out of prison and make those responsible pay for their crimes. WHATEVER THE COST. (Harvill Secker, April 2014)

“Jo Nesbø is an excellent novelist even if he’s not writing about Harry Hole.”

Mark Sanderson, London’s Evening Standard

“Whereas Headhunters, the first of Nesbø’s novels not to feature Harry Hole, was a ruthlessly linear chase story, The Son is far more complex and sophisticated. The characterisation is deeper and more detailed — one thug has droopy replacement eyelids made from his own foreskin — which only adds to the sense of life-and-death drama. Consequently the outcome is far more moving.”
