From the bestselling author of the Harry Hole series, comes a short, sharp shock of a thriller. Blood on Snow- Drugs. Death. Murder. Revenge - and a hitman with two big problems
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.

"Deserves to be a smash... A perfectly pitched thriller" * Sunday
"[An] incendiary cocktail of murder, revenge and a hitman with multiple problems" * Independent *
"Nesbo is in bracing form...gripping" * Sun *
"Striking in its simplicity... Nesbo is a writer at the top of his game who continues to amaze in new and confounding ways" * Daily Express *
"The undisputed king of Scandinavian crime fiction...I am so used to the energetic plot twists, fiendish violence and addictive verbosity of Nesbo's writing that Blood on Snow, with its simplicity, brevity and unlikely poetry, comes as a welcome antidote. It is set in the 1970s, an era of increasing fascination to Nesbo, and has a first-person narrative that provides a window into its protagonist's lonely, tortured soul" * The Times *
