Summary
This excellent standalone from Nesbo, best known for his Harry Hole series ("Police" etc.), centers on Sonny Lofthus (aka the Son), who's serving a sentence at Oslo's Staten Maximum Security Prison for two murders to which he confessed but which he did not commit. Sonny began using drugs before his incarceration, after his police officer father, Ab, hanged himself, leaving a note in which Ab confessed to having been a dirty cop. To manipulate Sonny, prison officials, lawyers, and police enable Sonny's habit. When another inmate, Johannes Halden, who's dying of cancer, begs for Sonny's forgiveness after admitting a role in framing Ab and making his murder look like suicide, Sonny stops taking drugs and later escapes from prison with Johannes's help
