Author Biography

Jo Nesbo is one of the world's bestselling crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police, The Son and his latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, all topping the Sunday Times bestseller charts. He's an international number one bestseller and his books are published in 50 languages, selling over 40 million copies around the world.

Before becoming a crime writer, 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'). They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo 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.

Review

You can imagine the worst (and you will probably be right), but the brilliant Jo Nesbo will surprise you anyway. Knife is the most unpredictable novel in the [Harry Hole] series Forbes, Russia This is Scandi noir as dark as obsidian with an emotional wreck of a protagonist i Knife sees the return of Harry's old nemesis Svein Finne... The plot never goes the way you think it will, as Nesbo delights in playing tricks on the reader Mail on Sunday Knife shows Nesbo back on form... This is a police procedural that breaks the bounds of the format with abandon... Nesbo manhandles the reader into contented...submission Financial Times [Knife] may be Nesbo's best storytelling yet. It's not just clever; it's diabolical, and let's be glad it is, because the corkscrewing plot provides a measure of relief from the pain on view in this uncompromisingly intense and brilliant novel Booklist
