His Norwegian crime novels have astounded and entertained millions of readers across the world, translated into 40 languages and hitting best-seller lists. Jo Nesbo will be in St. Paul later this month, at an event co-sponsored by Micawber's Books and Friends of the St. Paul Library.
He'll read from "Phantom," his latst Henry Hole thriller, at 7 p.m. Oct. 29 at St. Anthony Park Lutheran Church, 2323 Como Ave.
Nesbo is the author of more than a dozen novels, including "The Snowman" and "The Leopard." Detective Henry Hole, one of his most popular characters, is an Oslo detective with a drinking problem who fights not just criminals, but his own personal demons.
Nesbo is also an economist and a musician, so who knows what he'll do in St. Paul, exactly? Sing? Read? Help you with your taxes?
