Description - The Redbreast by Jo Nesbo

"An elegant and complex thriller....Harrowingly beautiful."--New York Times Book Review"A hugely impressive achievement--ambitious in scope, and skilled in execution."--Los Angeles Times"The Redbreast certainly ranks with the best of current American crime fiction."--Washington PostNo disrespect meant to Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, but Jo Nesbo, the New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman, is the most exciting Scandinavian thriller writer in the crime fiction business. The Redbreast is a fabulous introduction to Nesbo's tough-as-nails series protagonist, Oslo police detective Harry Hole. A brilliant and epic novel, breathtaking in its scope and design--winner of The Glass Key for best Nordic crime novel and selected as the best Norwegian crime novel ever written by members of Norway's book clubs--The Redbreast is a chilling tale of murder and betrayal that ranges from the battlefields of World War Two to the streets of modern-day Oslo. Follow Hole as he races to stop a killer and disarm a ticking time-bomb from his nation's shadowy past. Vogue magazine says that "nobody can delve into the dark, twisted mind of a murderer better than a Scandinavian thriller writer..".and nobody does it better than Jo Nesbo! James Patterson fans should also take note.

Author Biography - Jo Nesbo

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.
