About the Author

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 34 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.Sign up to the Jo Nesbo newsletter for all the latest news- jonesbo.com/newsletter

Reviews

"An extremely gruesome journey to the darker recesses of human nature, this grisly treat will delight Nesbo's fans" * Mirror * "It's a big-boned, Technicolor epic in the current Nesbo style, starting adagio and ending accelerando, but with the kind of close psychological character readings that distinguished his early work" * Guardian * "An epic tale that will delight fans of the bestselling series... There is always a risk that if you resurrect a much-loved series after a long break it will not reach its previous highs. But The Thirst is Nesbo at his glorious best with even the minor characters wonderfully drawn. This tense, nerve-shredding tale is impossible to put down as it hurtles towards a stunning finale. Nesbo is one of the best thriller writers on the planet" -- Charlotte Heathcote * Daily Express * "Gripping from the get-go, deliciously dark and expertly plotted, this is Nesbo at his brilliant best" * Heat * "Expertly plotted with vividly drawn characters, frenetic police chases and philosophising villains[...] Expect to be thoroughly entertained." * Crime Fiction Lover *
