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 Kirk he was his best friend. Both were devastated when his corruption was revealed. But neither of them knew the truth.

This is the first Jo Nesbo book I read (and the English translated version from the Norwegian).
I absolutely LOVED the book - the mysteries were well sustained, the characters were well developed. I think the character development was key - every minor character got enough play that you cared about them.

I definitely plan to read more by Jo Nesbo

Starts slow. Ending is self-indulgent and overwritten. Middle portions contain great Nesbo writing.
