A man is thrown from a fifth-floor balcony in what appears to be just a drunken brawl in a rough part of town. Mikael Brenne takes on the job of defending the accused.
Then Edvard Matre makes an appearance in Bergen. He has started working for Kripos’s cold-case group and is investigating an old murder in the Bergen underworld. It begins to dawn on Mikael that he himself could become Matre’s chief suspect.
Honour and Conscience is a book about unknown blood ties and old secrets, Mikael Brenne is forced to dig deep into the darkness within.
It’s one thing to brandish terms like guilt and atonement in court when referring to a case you're solely tied to as a professional.
But when it gets personal, it’s something else entirely...
This is the tenth book in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series about Bergen lawyer Mikael Brenne.
