Patti Smith has been nominated for a Grammy in the “Best Spoken Word Album” category for her performance as the narrator for the audiobook version of Jo Nesbo’s Blood on Snow. The winner will be announced at the Grammy ceremony in Los Angeles on February 15th, 2016. Listen to a clip from the audiobook here.
TV series Occupied, inspired by an idea of Jo Nesbo’s, will come to Sky Arts in the UK this January. Filmed in Norwegian, Russian and English, the show foregrounds social and environmental issues that cause a dramatic spiral of events when oil production in the North Sea comes to a halt. In the absorbing narrative filled with suspense, we follow corporate espionage and the Russian infiltration of Norway, in a desperate act to maintain the menacing oil and gas industry.’
