Norwegian by Night - Derek B Miller

Following his wife's death Sheldon moves to Norway to live with his granddaughter.
Left home alone in the flat one day he hears a violent argument and steps in to help the victims.
Through the book are references to Sheldon's Jewishness and the history of Jews in general.
One of the sentences that  rings powerfully relates to his single action to help and was that so hard?
On the run with a young boy who's being hunted by his violent father there are adventures galore and a great relationship between an old man and a young boy who don't speak the same language.
There's action, violence, heartbreak and humour.
I'm in the queue for the next one.
