Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Jo Nesbø was born on March 29, 1960 in Molde, Norway. He graduated from the Norwegian School of Economics with a degree in Economics and Business Administration. Nesbø worked as a freelance journalist and a stockbroker before he began his writing career. He is an Edgar Award nominated Norwegian author and musician. As of September 2008 more than 1.5 million copies of his novels have been sold in Norway, and his work has been translated into over 40 languages. Nesbø is known for his crime novels about Inspector Harry Hole, but he is also the main vocalist and songwriter for the Norwegian rock band Di Derre. In 2007 Nesbø also released his first children's book, Doktor Proktors prumpepulver (English translation: Doctor Proctor's Fart Powder). The 2011 film Headhunters is based on Nesbø's novel Hodejegerne (The Headhunters). The No.1 national bestseller, The Bat, is the first installment in the Harry Hole series and made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013. The series follows Harry Hole, a tough detective who struggles with alcoholism and works on solving crimes on the streets of Oslo. Hole takes on murderers, bank robbers, gangsters and the establishment, but actually also spends a significant amount of time battling nightmares and his own demons. (Bowker Author Biography)
