"I got off the bus in the middle of the night. Screwed my eyes up against the sun. It was scouring across an island out to sea, off to the north. Red and dull. Like me. Beyond it lay yet more sea. And, beyond that, the North Pole. Perhaps this was somewhere they wouldn’t find me."

“That was what life was: a process of destruction, a disintegration from what at the outset was perfect. The only suspense involved was whether we would be destroyed in one sudden act or slowly.” ―from THE LEOPARD by Jo Nesbø

“We're capable of understanding that someone has to drop an atomic bomb on a town of innocent civilians, but not that others have to cut up prostitutes who spread disease and moral depravity in the slums of London. Hence we call the former realism and the latter madness.”

"Macbeth is a story that is close to my heart because it tackles topics I’ve been dealing with since I started writing. A main character who has the moral code and the corrupted mind, the personal strength and the emotional weakness, the ambition and the doubts to go either way. A thriller about the struggle for power, set both in a gloomy, stormy crime noir-like setting and in a dark,...

Jo Nesbo, Midnight Sun: "There was good Scandinavian crime writing before Stieg Larssen, but then the deluge. Sorting through it all to find the absolute top of the field was easier than expected once I found Nesbo. The Harry Hole series, regardless of the unfortunate name choice, is consistently superb. This new stand-alone may not be quite up to that high standard, but it’s still my favorite...
