In the title compound, C13H10N2O5S, the C=O bond in the —SO2—NH—CO— segment is anti to the meta-nitro group in the benzoyl ring, while the N—C bond has gauche torsions with respect to the S=O bonds. The molecule is twisted at the N atom with a dihedral angle of 79.9 (2)° between the sulfonyl benzene ring and the —SO2—NH—CO— segment. Furthermore, the dihedral angle between the benzeneline rings is 86.9 (2)°. In the structure, the mol­ecules are linked into helical chains along the b axis via N—H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
