Early reviews this week

This week's reviews are a bit early but I'm going to be away for a few days. I hope you enjoy reading the following:

Norman Price reviews The Fugitive by Massimo Carlotto which is the book Carlotto wrote about his life as a man on the run and his wrongful imprisonment; Fiona Walker adds K O Dahl to her list of Scandinavian authors after reading The Fourth Man; Maxine Clarke says if you go with the flow on some of the plot devices, then Hurting Distance by Sophie Hannah is a gripping thriller and I was transfixed by The Exception by Christian Jungersen, a masterful piece of writing.
