"An expertly plotted, compelling and gripping white-knuckle ride... Nesbo deserves to be crowned the king of all crime thriller writers" 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 "Nesbo never fails to deliver a cracking narrative - and this is one of his best" Mail on Sunday "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 "Gripping from start to finish" -- John Williams Mail on Sunday
About Jo Nesbo
Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore 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 the world's leading crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police and The Son all topping the UK bestseller charts, and his novels are published in 48 languages.
