The gripping new thriller from the author of The Snowman

He’s the best cop they’ve got.

When a drug bust turns into a bloodbath it’s up to Inspector Macbeth and his team to clean up the mess.

He’s also an ex-drug addict with a troubled past.

He’s rewarded for his success. Power. Money. Respect. They’re all within reach.

But a man like him won’t get to the top.

Plagued by hallucinations and paranoia, Macbeth starts to unravel. He’s convinced he won’t get what is rightfully his.

Unless he kills for it.

A MATCH MADE IN HELL: Who better to reinvent the world’s boldest, bloodiest, and most ruthless anti-hero but the creator of Harry Hole?

NESBOMANIA IS MORE FERVENT THAN EVER: On the heels of “THE YEAR OF NESBO” comes this intriging surprise from Norway’s top literary export.

CROSSOVER OPPORTUNITY: A chance to introduce Nesbo addicts to the internationally acclaimed Hogarth Shakespeare Series.

INTERNATIONAL SENSATION: Nesbo’s Harry Hole series has been published in 48 languages.

JO NESBO played football for Norway’s premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally 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 to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole thriller, The Bat. He is one of the world’s leading crime writers, regularly topping the international bestseller charts. His novels are published in 50 languages, and in 2017 Harry Hole will make his first appearance on the silver screen in a film adaptation of The Snowman starring Michael Fassbender.
