Jo Nesbø

Cindy Seip

Jo Nesbø is a musician, songwriter, economist, and New York Times bestselling author who has won the Raymond Chandler Award for Lifetime Achievement as well as many others. His Harry Hole novels include The Redeemer, The Snowman, The Leopard, Phantom, and most recently, Knife. He has also written The Son, Headhunters, Macbeth, and several children’s books. With The Jealousy Man and Other Stories (Knopf), Nesbø’s dexterity in exploring the darkest corners of the human heart are on full display, across 12 short tales that deftly and breathlessly unfold. A detective who specializes in jealousy-driven murder cases. An instantly electric – and possibly sinister – connection between two strangers. A devastating pandemic that provides the rich with an opportunity to deal with their greatest threat: the masses of the poor and the desperate. Threaded throughout is Nesbø’s gift for outstanding atmosphere and gut-wrenching revelations – The New York Times called him “the greatest contemporary writer of the thriller” – pulling readers on a journey of twisted minds and vengeful hearts.
