Sun Heidi Sæbø

Kim Jong-Un. A Shadow Portrait of a Tyrant

On February 13, 2017, a man is killed, in plain sight, at Kuala Lumpur airport. When the deceased turns out to be Kim Jong-nam, all suspicion points to the man's half-brother, North Korea's dictator Kim Jong-un. In this book, Sun Heidi Sæbø follows the trail from this spectacular murder, and ends up with a portrait of a dictator with his back against the wall, and a country with little left to lose.
