Macbeth: by Jo Nesbo | Conversation Starters
New York Times bestselling author of The Snowman Jo Nesbo writes another heart-pounding thriller. Jo Nesbo's reinterpretation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth is set in a run-down industrial down in the 1970s. The novel centers around the town police force struggling to end the nonstop drug problem. Duncan is the visionary and idealistic chief of police. He is a dream to the people of his town but he is a nightmare to the criminals. Two drug lords rule the trade. Hecate is one of those two and has mastered the art of manipulation. He knows powerful people and he can use them to move the way he wants to.
Hecate’s plot was steady and the new target of his manipulation is Inspector Macbeth. He is the head of the SWAT team and his paranoid and violent tendencies make him susceptible all the more. Love, guilt, crime, politics and greed surround the story of Jo Nesbo’s Macbeth. New York Times Book Review’s James Shapiro praises this novel and calls it “inventive and deeply satisfying.” The Washington Post praises Nesbo for balancing “being true to the original play without slighting his own interests as a writer.”
