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.
"Shifting effortlessly between the last days of WWII on the Eastern front and modern day Oslo, Norwegian Nesb spins a complex tale of murder, revenge and betrayal. . . . Perfectly paced and painfully suspenseful."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
