March 2012 Book of the Month.

This highly original, dark (v v dark) and sinister thriller breaks all the rules; such as switching from 1st, 2nd and 3rd person and having a highly fragmented timeline, but it delivers something thrillingly different. Four friends set up an agency to say ‘sorry’ and allow company executives to be absolved of guilt - but does that mean anyone can be absolved of anything with a simple transfer of cash?

If you like Zoran Drvenkar you might also like to read books by Thomas Harris, Mo Hayder and Stephen King.

Synopsis

Sorry by Zoran Drvenkar

Saying you're sorry may not save your life! ONE. TWO. THREE. That's all it takes to drive the nail into her head, to leave her hanging on the wall. She deserved to die. Now all he needs is absolution for his sins. And he knows just the people who can help.

IF SORRY SEEMS TO BE THE HARDEST WORD, THEN LET US SAY IT FOR YOU. Kris, Tamara,Wolf and Frauke. Four friends with one big idea: an agency called Sorry. Unfair dismissals, the wrongly accused: everyone has a price, and Sorry will find out what it is. It's as simple as that. But they didn't count on their next client being a killer. Standing face to face with a brutally murdered woman, the philosophy that has brought them so much success sounds hollow. But who is the killer and why has he killed her? Someone is mocking them for playing God and hell is only just beginning.

Reviews

'Sorry is the kind of thriller, the kind of novel, that doesn't come along every day...Sorry thrills, and it thrills immaculately. It's that oft-cited but very rare species of novel we call a page-turner, and it brilliantly achieves this because Drvenkar knows how to use all the tools at his disposal, to excellent effect.'
New York Times

'This thriller breaks with all conventions, topping all expectations. Drvenkar has taken the well
-known theme of guilt and atonement and turned it upside down, playing a morbid game with his protagonists and the reader. Fast paced and in deadly good style. A joy to read, a piece of art' Die Welt

'It's a terrific book, very dark, very sinister and very original. I loved it!it is really something special' JOANNE HARRIS

'It's rare that a book in the crime fiction genre can break all the writing conventions and yet keep you on the edge of your seat until the bitter end...Drvenkar breaks the mould with SORRY...A master of his craft.' COURIER MAIL

'This is what thrillers should be about. Taut, tense and terrific, Sorry is a cracking read'
SEAN BLACK


'You need to be prepared and ready to read Sorry. Ready for the brave experiment in writing not seen before in this genre, and ready for an extraordinary plot' Berliner Zeitung


'One of the best German language thrillers ever. And certainly the most original in years'
Krimi-couch.de

'This is a very clever, dark read...Drvenkar [is] a writer to watch.' Booklist


'A challenging, insightful thriller...Drvenkar adroitly keeps the reader in the dark as he unravels a horrific story of child sexual abuse, savage revenge, and retribution.' PW
