    Author Information
    Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Modle, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore crucial ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di derre (Them There). Their second album topped the charts in Norway, but he continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat. He is regarded as one of Europe's leading crime writers, with both The Leopard and Phantom topping the UK bestseller charts, and his novels are published in 40 countries.

    Review quote
    "An expertly plotted, compelling and gripping white-knuckle ride. [Nesbo] deserves to be crowned the king of all crime thrillers" Sunday Express "A cat-and-mouse chase between a young prisoner and a troubled detective, this is a tense, violent and hugely absorbing walk on the murky side of Oslo" Sunday Mirror "Gripping from start to finish" -- John Williams Mail on Sunday "Fast-paced and imaginatively violent, this latest example of Nesbo's Nordic noir hurtles like an express train towards a last act of almost operatic extravagance that leaves dead bodies and carefully nurtured reputations littering the stage. Great stuff altogether" -- Myles McWeeney Belfast Telegraph "An excellent novelist... Nesbo paints an intricate, disturbing picture of rampant corruption within prison and the police service... The strong action is tempered by tenderness" -- Marcel Berlins The Times
