Jo Nesbø is definitely one of the most well-known Scandinavian Crime authors now; thanks to Stieg Larsson’s trilogy in which introduced Scandinavian crime to the mainstream book market and also his recent bestseller book, The Snowman. In this video, Jo talks about how he came up with the idea of Harry Hole character, how much this character is inspired by his own personality and his other thoughts.
Two things which I found very interesting in this interview: First, no Harry Hole movies till the series finishes and second, the series is going to end soon. I hope he keeps up the good work after Harry Hole novels end as he is truly one of notable authors of crime fiction not only in Norway but also internationally.
In the case you are interested in Harry Hole novels, you can take a look at the following titles which are now available in English (Click on the images).
