If you’re a fan of Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbo it’s time to get very excited. He’ll be landing in the UK next week for the start of his first nationwide tour of the UK and Ireland.
The tour celebrates the publication of his new Harry Hole thriller – Police – which will be published by Harvill Secker on 12th September [watch this space for a review coming soon!].
Jo Nesbo will be appearing at events and signings in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Stirling, Belfast and Dublin from 12th to 16th September including the Coronet Cinema, Notting Hill, with Waterstones Piccadilly; headline events for both Bloody Scotland! Crime Writing Festival and the Manchester Literature Festival; No Alibis bookshop in Belfast; and The Pavillion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire for Eason. There are also three lunchtime signing sessions with Waterstones in London.
On the 14th he’s also doing the country’s first ‘high-speed book signing’ on-board a Virgin Train with WH Smith, and signings in support of the Books Are My Bag campaign.
If you’re in London, Manchester, Glasgow or Dublin watch out for the fly posters going up to promote the tour.
I’m heading off to the Bloody Scotland Crime Writing Festival next week and I’ll be sure to look out for the posters and the man himself!
