Detective Harry Hole finds himself up against a terrifying serial killer in this thriller by internationally bestselling Jo Nesbo
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.
