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 50 languages. The new Harry Hole thriller, The Thirst, is published on April 20th 2017.

    Perhaps because of the Australian setting but I am hugely disappointed in this book. Plot and characters are contrived and Harry Hole, pronounced 'Holy', lacks depth and grit. I've got 9 more of these to read and certainly hope for an improvement. Maybe it was a mistake to pick this book up straight after reading the excellent Michael Connelly novel 'The Gods of Guilt'.
