About this item

The author of the best-selling Harry Hole series now gives us an electrifying stand-alone novel set inside Oslos maze of especially venal, high-level corruption.   Sonny Lofthus is a strangely charismatic and complacent young man. Sonnys 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 dont know or care that Sonny has a serious heroin habit—or where or how he gets his uninterrupted supply of the drug. Or that hes 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.
