"SUSHI had become the pizza of the uppermiddle class, the policeman Simon Kefas as he attempts to eat a tiny jellyfish in Norway's bestselling latest thriller titled The Son. The ads say that author Jo Nesbo is "the reigning king of Scandinavian crime fiction." And the Times pronounced him "the crime author of the moment."
I can't pretend I've read many of Nesbo's works but I was scared witless by The Snowman and The Leopard and I'm now plowing through The Son. I say this like it's hard because this one -- about revenge -- is not something you can read, put down and pick up a few minutes later.
