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.

We know what you should say. We say what you want to hear.

Kris, Tamara, Wolf, and Frauke. Four young friends with too much time on their hands and one big idea: an agency called Sorry. Unfair dismissals, the wrongly accused, jilted lovers: everyone has a price and the Sorry team will find out what that is. It’s as simple as that. The idea catches on like wildfire and the quartet are soon raking in the cash, doing the emotional dirty work for fat cats, businessmen, and the romantically challenged.

But what they didn’t count on is that their latest client would be a killer.

Standing face-to-face with a brutally murdered woman, Kris and Wolf suddenly realize that the philosophy that has brought them so much success may have a flaw in it. And what they are compelled to do by the person who has contracted them is to dispose of the body. But who is the killer and why has he killed her? Someone is mocking them for playing God, and hell is only just beginning.

Intricately plotted, breathtakingly paced, utterly original, Sorry plunges the reader into a world whose connections dazzle the mind. Once you have read it, you will never be able to say “sorry” in quite the same way again.

From Publishers Weekly

Jul 11, 2011 – Drvenkar, who was born in Croatia but has lived in Germany since he was three, makes his adult debut in the U.S. with a challenging, insightful thriller. Three Berlin friends in their late 20s, once part of the same high school clique—Kris Marrer, Tamara Berger, Frauke Lewin—and Kris's two-years younger brother, Wolf, form a company, Sorry, which makes apologies for businesses that have erred in their treatment of employees. Then their paths cross with Lars Meybach, a sadistic killer, who hires them to apologize to his victims, despite their being dead, and clean up after him. Meybach threatens their families if they refuse. Drvenkar (Tell Me What You See and other YA novels) adroitly keeps the reader in the dark as he unravels a horrific story of child sexual abuse, savage revenge, and retribution. A series of shocking, clarifying resolutions clears up the confusion regarding who is a victim and who is a perpetrator.

Customer Reviews

Complex thriller

Chilling story involving awful murders and a strange agency that is for hire to make apologies. The plot is complex, but that generates the suspense. Translated from German, though the work reads smoothly. Very literate. Smarmy ending, though.
