Macbeth Reviews

"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 *
"Bursts with a rude imaginative vigour" -- Andrew Taylor * Spectator *
"Has the dark, DC Comics-style setting of the author's Harry Hole books... wonderfully atmospheric" * Daily Express *
"Jo Nesbo + Shakespeare = pure dynamite...the plot is explosive from start to finish" * Stavanger Aftenblad, Norway *
"World-class writing. Jo Nesbo at his best" * Faedrelandsvennen, Norway *
"Masterful...apocalyptic... The result is magnificent... Readers who have never heard of Shakespeare will read this novel as a pure, suspenseful crime novel" * Dagbladet, Norway *

About Jo Nesbo

Jo Nesbo is one of the world's bestselling crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police, The Son and his latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, all topping the Sunday Times bestseller charts. He's an international number one bestseller and his books are published in 50 languages, selling over 40 million copies around the world. Before becoming a crime writer, Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di Derre ('Them There'). They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat.
