While in prison Fermin, inspired by the story of The Count of Monte Cristoescapes by taking the place of a dead cell mate, stealing a key from the stranger. Knowing the stranger has finally tracked him down, Fermin, with the help of Daniel, attempts to locate the man and come to an arrangement before he’s required to pay the ultimate price.

The Prisoner of Heaven highlights the unreliability of the narrator in The Angel’s Game and sheds light on the mental instability of David Martin who has fallen further into insanity in the flashbacks from Fermin’s time in prison.


As a result, major aspects of The Angel’s Game are called into question including whether David was ever truly healed of his brain tumour. Like Zafon’s earlier novels, The Prisoner of Heaven follows a non-linear structure.

The core of the book is written in the first person from Daniel’s point of view; however, the plot relies on flashbacks in the third person.
