Jo Nesbø - Scandinavian noir novelist

They say that I am the turtle version of Harry Hole.

Jo Nesbø. The works of this Norwegian novelist have been translated into over 40 languages, proving to be very popular also outside Norway. I have read mainly the series of novels with Harry Hole as the main character - a hard skinned alcoholic police detective working at the National Criminal Investigation Service (Kripos). Jo Nesbø does a lot of research for his novels, and the stories are very entertaining, giving the reader a lot of background information and letting them know also the side characters. Jo Nesbø is one of my absolute favourite novelists in this gender and I hope he will keep writing for a long time.

Books in the Harry hole series - original Norwegian title (English title), year :
