The leading author of Harry Hole’s hard-boiled detective series excites UK fans by showcasing a brand new Scandi thriller.
Jo Nesbø needs no introduction; he has honed his creative-writing skills with an impressive body of work published in 40 countries, as well as a musician in the Norwegian pop rock band Di Derre. In 2011, his dark-humoured crime caper Headhunters was adapted into a BAFTA nominated film directed by Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game, 2014) starring Aksel Hennie and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Now his 13th novel Blood on Snow is heading for the bookshelves.
Due to an accident at the age of 18, Nesbø‘s career transformed as a star player of Norway’s premier league football team to earning a degree in Economics and Business Administration. Since then, he can boast winning the Glass Key Award for his first ever book – The Bat - Harry Hole’s inauguration into the Oslo police department and the Best Nordic Crime Novel of the Year in 1998.
Nesbø recently celebrated the release of the vengeful saga The Son on 15th January 2015. Avid readers have also been in the throes of suspense since the cover art for Blood on Snow was advertised on 8th December 2014 to tantalise and tease. Here is a brief description of what we can expect from the nefarious new plot:
“Olav lives the lonely life of a fixer. When you ‘fix’ people for a living – terminally – it’s hard to get close to anyone. Now he’s finally met the woman of his dreams. But there are two problems. She’s his boss’s wife. And Olav’s just been hired to kill her.”
