Harvill Secker Announces New Jo Nesbo Novel

Posted at 2:07PM Tuesday 30 Oct 2012

The Random House Group UK is delighted to announce the publication of a new Jo Nesbo Harry Hole novel, putting an end to fans' fears that their favourite fictional detective had finally met his match at the end of the last book, PHANTOM. POLICE will be published by Harvill Secker in autumn 2013.

Fans will also be delighted by the news that COCKROACHES, the second book in the Harry Hole series, will be published shortly after POLICE. With its publication, readers will have access to all ten books in Jo Nesbo's bestselling series. THE BAT, the first ever Harry Hole novel, was published for the first time in English this October by Harvill Secker and went straight into the Sunday Times bestseller list.

POLICE continues the story of PHANTOM, which was a Sunday Times #2 bestseller when it was published in March this year, spending 7 weeks in the top ten. The Harry Hole novels have sold over 15 million copies worldwide, over 3 million of those in the UK. Jo Nesbo is regarded as one of the world's leading crime writers, and his novels are published in more than 45 languages.

Jo Nesbo visited London last week for the Specsavers Crime Thriller Awards where he was elected into the International Crime Writing Hall of Fame, alongside such luminaries as Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, P D James, Lee Child, Val McDermid, Kathy Reichs and Mark Billingham.
