Jo Nesbø (pronounced [ˈju ˈnɛsbø]; born 29 March 1960) is an Glass Key award winning Norwegian author and musician. As of September 2008 more than 1.5 million copies of his novels have been sold in Norway, and his work has been translated into over 40 languages, selling over 9 million copies (2013). Nesbø is primarily known for his crime novels about Inspector Harry Hole, but he is also the main vocalist and songwriter for the Norwegian rock band Di Derre. In 2007 Nesbø also released his first children’s book, Doktor Proktors prumpepulver (English translation: Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder). The 2011 film Headhunters is based on Nesbø’s novel Hodejegerne (The Headhunters). — excerpted from Wikipedia
