Product description


“Nesbo does it superbly, page by page and battle by battle. . . . [I]t’s all just how well Nesbo builds the characters and keeps the story rolling and . . . it moves like gangbusters. . . .Nesbo’s characters are so rich that they can carry it all to the end. . . . In noir, it’s mood that counts and Nesbo has maintained that and the original plotline to the final page. I read the last 200 pages in one long, eye-blinding binge. Save this one for a long weekend with no interruptions.” —Margaret Cannon, TheGlobe and Mail

“Somewhere in the world of book publishing, a bunch of editors is laughing. It’s dark, bleak laughter, of course, appropriate to those who dreamed up matching Jo Nesbø and his brutalist Scandinavian noir crime fiction with Shakespeare’s Scottish tragedy of ambition, hubris, passion and profound cruelty, Macbeth. . . . The resulting five hundred pages, in which Nesbø offers his re-created version of the tale, is unrelenting and vicious, as well as vividly, compellingly written. . . .  Nesbø’s takes the prize as most cynically unremitting in its depiction of human behaviour. . . . Not that the original Macbeth was in any way jolly, a fact reflected by Nesbø’s refusal to write a single even mildly amusing line. But that’s also been his literary nature throughout his string of fifteen best-selling novels, an oeuvre that has set the standard for an astoundingly prolific set of Scandinavian crime writers. . . . Word after word, the novel is unrelenting and gruelling. That’s precisely Nesbø’s specialty, so must be exactly what the chuckling editors who commissioned him for the Hogarth Shakespeare project expected and wanted, their very well-written nightmare come true.” —Joan Barfoot, author of Exit Lines, Montreal Gazette

“A story of betrayal . . . filled with many twists and turns, you’re not bored a single minute.” —Norbert Spehner, CBC Radio (translated from French)

“What Shakespeare withholds, Nesbø delves into deeply, taking one of Shakespeare’s shortest and most enigmatic plays and expanding on what brought his characters to this point in their lives. . . . The result is inventive and deeply satisfying, especially to readers already familiar with the plot.” —James Shapiro, The New York Times

“Nesbo’s adaptation sings when he departs from the original script. . . . This author packs his novel with action, from shootouts to chase scenes, and there’s something compelling about the drive behind them, about the need these characters have to construct something greater and more interesting than the circumstances meted out to them by the universe. . . . Nesbo followers will devour it in one sitting.” —NPR

“The grim Scandinavian genre is a perfect match for this grimmest of plays, and Jo Nesbo’s update totally fulfills that promise.” —The News & Observer
