Boualem Sansal is not afraid to tackle difficult topics. His novels, written in French, are banned in his own country, Algeria. An Unfinished Business is the story of two young men who discover their father was a Nazi who died without having paid for his crimes. It is the fruit of his 20-year study of the Holocaust and reflects the parallels he sees between Nazis and Jihadists.
