>Have received today from Salomonsson Agency the following information:
1. Nemesis (Harry Hole #4) is nominated for an Edgar© for Best Novel of the Year 2010.
2. The Leopard (Harry Hole #8) was published in Norway in September, and became the No.1 bestselling novel in Norway in 2009, outselling Dan Brown and Henning Mankell by far. The Leopard will be out in Germany next month. This is a short introduction: “Two women are found murdered in Oslo – both of them have drowned in their own blood. What mystifies the police, is that the puncture wounds in the victim’s faces have been caused from the inside of their mouths. Kaja Solness from Oslo Homicide is sent to Hong Kong to track down a man that is the Oslo Police Department’s only specialist on serial killings. The severely addicted detective has tried to disappear in the vast, anonymous city. He is on the run and haunted by his last case, the woman he loves, and creditors alike. His name is Harry Hole.“
3. Jo Nesbø also writes children’s fiction, and his debut in that genre, Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder was published in the US in January 2010, and received excellent reviews. Right now, Jo is in Thailand, working on the third book in the Doctor Proctor series.
