Today the latest issue of the New Zealand Listener magazine (February 11-17 2012 issue) hits newstands, and the lead article in the acclaimed Arts & Books section is my feature on Norwegian crime writing superstar Jo Nesbø, who will be visiting New Zealand in March. In the three-page feature we discuss a number of things, including the deterioration of Harry Hole, why Nesbø writes what he wants, rather than following any trends, the comparisons to Stieg Larsson, his standalone thriller HEADHUNTERS (and the film versions), Martin Scorcese's film version of THE SNOWMAN, and Nesbo's latest book, PHANTOM.
So if you're in New Zealand, go and grab a copy of this week's New Zealand Listener. It's a good read.
Jo Nesbø will speak at events in Auckland (6 March), Christchurch (7 March), Wanaka (8 March) and finally at the Embassy Theatre in Wellington (10 March) at the New Zealand International Arts Festival, He will also introduce the Headhunters movie preview screening to be held later the same evening in each centre.
