Serving time for crimes he did not commit in exchange for heroin payouts, Sonny Lofthus uses his spiritual charisma to navigate corrupt and violent elements in his life before learning disturbing truths about his police officer father's suicide. The author of the internationally best-selling Harry Hole series now gives us an electrifying stand-alone novel 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 has been in prison for a dozen years. 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 is the seemingly malleable center of a whole infrastructure of corruption, all focused on keeping him high and in jail. But when he learns a stunning, long-hidden secret concerning his father, he makes a brilliantly executed escape from prison and begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him.
