Crime thriller master Jo Nesbø discusses his latest novel, The Son, which is set inside Oslo’s maze of especially venal, high-level corruption. It tells the story of Sonny Lofthus, who has been in prison for a dozen years, nurturing a serious heroin habit, serving time for other peoples’ crimes. When he learns a long-hidden secret, he escapes and begins hunting down those responsible for the crimes against him.
