Jo Nesbø’s publisher in Denmark, Modtryk, made a fantastic book trailer of Jo’s upcoming novel Police, please see below.
Police is the tenth installment in the Harry Hole series and will be published in Norway on June 6th. The novel is currently being translated into English and will be available later this fall.
The Redeemer, the sixth installment in the Harry Hole series, is released in the U.S. today.
Kirkus Reviews says:
“Rarely does a mystery novel succeed on so many levels, as the intricate plotting explores psychological and theological dimensions that go deeper than standard notions of good and evil. As a literary stylist as well as as a master of mystery, Nesbø has established himself as the king of Scandinavian crime fiction. … [The Redeemer] may be the best, or at least the richest, in its evocation of a sinister plot … Ultimately, a story with a lot of pieces to its puzzle hurtles toward a climax that is not merely sad, but tragic.”
