The Father Summary

The book of the hit tie-in podcast Made in Sweden.

How does a child become a criminal? How does a father lose a son?

An epic crime novel with the excitement of Jo Nesbo's Headhunters and the depth of We Need to Talk About Kevin, The Father is inspired by the extraordinary true story of three brothers who held Sweden to ransom, committing 10 audacious bank robberies over just two years.

None had committed a crime before. All were under 22 years old. All of them would be changed forever.

In this intoxicating, heartbreaking thriller, the fourth brother, who was not involved in the real robberies, tells of three boys who grew from innocent children to become public enemy number one - and of the man who made them that way.

    After six years in prison, Sweden's most notorious criminal, Leo Duvnjac, is free, acquitted of all but two of the 10 bank robberies he and his two younger brothers pulled off. While behind bars, he befriended Sam Larsen, who was convicted of murdering his own father - and also happens to be the brother of the cop who caught Leo, Detective Superintendent John Broncks. With Sam at his side, Leo seeks out his now-law-abiding brothers for one last job and a chance at redemption - or revenge.
