NATIONAL BEST SELLER: Canadian readers love Harry Hole! And Jo Nesbø is nothing short of a household name among readers of smart, gritty thrillers. A #1 bestseller in the UK and Europe, Nesbo’s books are making gains in the US too: the last book in the series, Knife, debuted at #6 on the NYT hardcover list.
INTERNATIONAL PHENOMENON: The Harry Hole books have been translated into fifty languages, with more than fifty-five million copies sold worldwide.
LUCKY THIRTEEN: Four years after thrilling readers with Knife, Harry Hole is back in the thirteenth installment of the series. His fans love him the most when his life is a mess. And this lonely, hard-drinking, abrasive detective has never been at a lower point.
COORDINATED WORLD ENGLISH PUBLICATION: We’re planning a global English-language simultaneous publication, and have already been coordinating with our US cousins.
THE YEAR OF NESBØ: We’ll be publishing two novels, and a backlist title in 2023: HH #13 on the summer list, a horror novel in October, and to honour the 25th anniversary of the first novel in the series, a massmarket edition of the first HH, The Bat, in spring.
COMING TO A SCREEN NEAR YOU: Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) is attached to a streaming series based on the Harry Hole series, likely for Netflix, set to go into preproduction in February ’23. Amazon has just closed a deal for a TV series with Jonathan Noland (Westworld) based on The Son.
“Jo Nesbo is one of today’s most interesting thriller writers, and Harry Hole is an all-time great character—for me, a 100% buy-today-read-tonight delight.” —Lee Child
“Jo Nesbø slowly but surely proves what a superb master of suspense he is…. Killing Moon is a Harry Hole novel of the highest class. The cliffhanger for the next installment is already in place, so there is little doubt here. Harry Hole is back to stay.” —Verdens Gang (Norway)
“It’s hard to reinvent the crime story, but Jesus does this one pack a punch! Harry Hole is finally back after a three-year hiatus and there isn’t a single dull second when the murder mystery has to be solved at record speed in Killing Moon. Jo Nesbø is just wild.” —Romsdals Budstikke (Norway)
“Jo Nesbø is an ingenious plotter and tricks the reader time and time again…. The twisted universe bustles with life and suspense from the first page on and you almost compulsively keep turning the pages.” —Dagens Næringsliv (Norway)
“Nesbø has a sense of flair, a finesse, a wealth of ideas and plot construction that puts him in his own league among his crime writer colleagues.” —Adresseavisen (Norway)
