Oh no, I just read on our library's website that they have a 'meet the author' event this Saturday with the Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo: I love his books!!! Unfortunately I cannot make it since daughter M. will have her final performance of her school play "The Odyssee"...
Here is a little bit about the author. You can read more about him and his books here.
Jo Nesbo (Nesbø) is a musician, songwriter, economist, and one of Europe's most critically acclaimed and successful crime writers today. He lives in Oslo, Norway.
His first novel featuring Police Detective Harry Hole was an instant hit in Norway, winning the Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel—the most prestigious crime-writing award in Northern Europe. In 2004, The Redbreast was voted the "Best Norwegian Crime Novel Ever Written" by members of Norwegian book clubs.
