The gripping new thriller from the author of The Snowman inspired by one of Shakespeare's darkest and most psychologically haunting plays.

He’s the best cop they’ve got.

When a drug bust turns into a bloodbath it’s up to Inspector Macbeth and his team to clean up the mess. He’s also an ex-drug addict with a troubled past.  

He’s rewarded for his success.

Power. Money. Respect. They’re all within reach.

But a man like him won’t get to the top.

Plagued by hallucinations and paranoia, Macbeth starts to unravel. He’s convinced he won’t get what is rightfully his.

Unless he kills for it.

Inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth, Nesbo takes the character of a superstitious, ruthlessly ambitious king and transposes it to the world of investigative crime. Combining classic Nesbo noir with an interrogation into the psychology of crime, Macbeth is a novel that turns the tables on criminal and detective, victim and perpetrator, leading readers down an ever-darkening path.

The Hogarth Shakespeare Series sees Shakespeare’s works retold by acclaimed and bestselling novelists of today. Other titles in the series are: The Gap of TimeShylock is My NameVinegar GirlHag SeedNew Boy and Dunbar by Edward St. Aubyn (due in October 2017).

I am a huge fan of Jo Nesbo and couldn't wait for my order of this book to arrive but so far it has been a huge disappointment.
