Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position that Brown is recruiting for; he is also in possession of 'The Calydonian Boar Hunt' by Rubens, one of the most sought-after paintings in modern art history.

Author Information

Jo Nesbo is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Hoeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson). The Leopard, the sixth of Nesbo's novels to be translated into English, went straight to the top of the bestseller charts in its first week of publication. www.jonesbo.co.uk.

Review quote

"Nesbo is a master storyteller, gripping the reader from the first page and ratcheting up the suspense in a thrilling finale with several satisfying twists." Sunday Express "Keeps the twists and shocks coming hard and fast" Metro "A relentless and breakneck tale that keeps the reader hungrily turning the pages for more" Big Issue "A gripping read... I got lost in this book and hours skipped by as the chapters got shorter, more tense and the pace quickened to an almost unbearable crescendo... A thoroughly satisfying read" Irish Independent "With echoes of The Thomas Crown Affair, spectacular storytelling and a beautifully judged super-twist, it confirms Nesbo's place at the pinnacle of thriller writers and, inevitably, a film version will be with us next year. It's that good" -- Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail
