Key to this year will be the complete reissue of the Harry Hole backlistWith a fresh new, commercial look, the Nesbo Harry Hole backlist will be spotlighted throughout the year, benefitting from a long-tail marketing and publicity campaign and support from Jo Nesbo himselfExpertly plotted with vividly drawn characters, frenetic police chases and philosophising villains [...] Expect to be thoroughly entertainedFast-moving...stunning[The Thirst is] a breath-taking reading experience... Nesbo is the master when it comes to building a long and increasingly steep dramatic curve...

His cynicism about bent coppers and unscrupulous journalists is an inexhaustible and entertaining sideshow...if you liked the other ten, you'll greedily sink your teeth into thisJo Nesbo is on top form... [The Thirst is] a spell-binding story about brutal crimes and ambitions gone astray
