A musician, songwriter, and economist, Jo Nesb is also one of Europe's most acclaimed crime writers, and is the winner of the Glass Key Award, northern Europe's most prestigious crime-fiction prize, for his first novel featuring Police Detective Harry Hole. Nesb lives in Oslo.
"Nesbo offers up another top-notch mystery thriller, thickly layered, perfectly plotted, and briskly paced to keep readers hooked. With ties to events in The Redbreast, this is an excellent sequel. . . . Recommended for all fiction collections and essential for Scandinavian crime lovers."--Library Journal "High tension, lightning pace, a flawed but ultimately sympathetic protagonist: NEMESIS has it all."--BookPage "It's a good bet that if this is the first Harry Hole novel you read, you'll never miss another. . . . It's complex but so well written. . . . If you're a fan of crime fiction, Harry Hole's your man."--Arizona Republic "No matter what language you read, get on the Jo Nesbo crime patrol and see why the world loves Harry Hole."--Madison County Herald "The dense plot is supremely detailed. . . . A crisp, clean translation. . . . Satisfying."--New York Times Book Review "Nesb has a knack for Euro noir."--Entertainment Weekly "[A] beautifully executed heist drama... . Expertly weaving plot lines from Hole's last outing to feature the inspector, The Redbreast (2007), Nesbo delivers a lush crime saga that will leave U.S. readers clamoring for the next installment."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The high-intensity action is threaded through a series of Chinese boxes revealing one false solution after another before the brilliantly inventive final twist."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "Assured, complex, and evocative."--Seattle Times "Nesbo returns with another novel that is every bit the multitextured, complexly plotted, psychologically rich thriller that made Redbreast such an unqualified success. . . . No doubt about it: Nesbo belongs on every crime-fiction fan's A-list."--Booklist (starred review)
