About the audio book

Jo Nesbo has always admired the work of Patti Smith, the musician and punk poet, and when he read that she liked the Harry Hole series, he reached out to her and asked her to narrate the audio edition of Blood on Snow.

A legendary musician, performer and poet, Patti Smith has been responsible for some of the most iconic music of the last 50 years, and has used all of her craft in this reading of Nesbo's latest book. Her voice and performance transport the listener into the world of Blood on Snow, creating a listening experience unlike anything else.

About the Author

Jo Nesbo played football for Norway's premier league team Modle, but his dreams of playing professionally for Spurs were dashed when he tore crucial ligaments in his knee. After military service he attended business school and formed the band Di derre (Them There). Their second album topped the charts in Norway, but he continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night.

When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat. Published in Norway in 1997, it was an instant hit and won the prestigious Glass Key Award for Best Nordic Crime Novel of the Year, an accolade shared with Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson, launching Nesbo's international writing career. In April 2014 Jo Nesbo's most recent standalone thriller - The Son - topped the UK bestseller charts for 2 weeks and Police topped the paperback charts in August 2014. His books have sold over 25 million copies worldwide and and are published in 48 languages.
