JO NESBO: #1 Sunday Times bestseller, #1 New York Times bestseller, 40 million books sold worldwide
He’s the best cop they’ve got.
When a drug bust turns into a bloodbath it’s up to Inspector Macbeth and his team to clean up the mess.
He’s also an ex-drug addict with a troubled past.
He’s rewarded for his success. Power. Money. Respect. They’re all within reach.
But a man like him won’t get to the top.
Plagued by hallucinations and paranoia, Macbeth starts to unravel. He’s convinced he won’t get what is rightfully his.
Unless he kills for it.
"Majestically satisfying...a deliciously oppressive page-turner" (Steven Poole Guardian)
"Immensely enjoyable and gloriously dark... He has accomplished that toughest of literary feats: putting his own unmistakable mark on one of Shakespeare's most celebrated plays" (Matt Gibson Daily Express)
"Inventive and deeply satisfying... a dark but ultimately hopeful Macbeth, one suited to our own troubled times" (James Shapiro New York Times Book Review)
"Nesbo makes excellent use of all the atmosphere of his genre, and the stakes at play are every bit as convincing as those in the original... This is Nesbo doing what he's good at" (Lucy Scholes Independent)
"Macbeth as a SWAT team leader. His wife as a former prostitute. The three witches as drug dealers. It's Shakespeare's darkest tale -- reimagined by the king of Nordic noir" (Graeme Thomson Mail on Sunday)
"One of the few crime writers today blessed with a bloodlust worthy of the Jacobeans...riveting" (Jake Kerridge Daily Telegraph)
"Wonderfully atmospheric" (Jake Kerridge Sunday Express)
"Nesbo has let his noirish imagination run riot... more than matches Shakespeare for moment-to-moment thrills" (Claire Allfree Metro)
"A gripping tale of vaulting ambition and proof that “blood will have blood”" (Evening Standard)
"The fun comes from watching a crack storyteller put his noir stamp on one of Shakespeare's greatest tragedies... Nesbo manages the balancing act of being true to the original play without slighting his own interests as a writer: bleak settings, loyalty (or the lack thereof) among crooks, clever escapes from tight spots, the affinities between policemen and the criminals they chase" (Dennis Drabelle Washington Post)
