Set in a dark, rainy northern town, Nesbo's Macbeth pits the ambitions of a corrupt policeman against loyal colleagues, a drug-depraved underworld and the pull of childhood friendships.

Get ready to helter-skelter through the darkest tunnels of human experience.

Review by Sarah McDuling

If you have ever found yourself wondering what Macbeth would be like if it was set in the 1970s and reimagined as a gritty cop drama … no need to wonder anymore! In this latest addition to the Hogarth Shakespeare series, Jo Nesbo recreates ‘The Scottish Play’ as tale of corrupt cops versus underground criminals.

Jo Nesbo’s Macbeth is a dark, ominously grim retelling of Shakespeare's famous play. Combining Jo Nesbo’s absorbing writing style with Shakespeare’s powerful themes of ambition, power, greed and corruption, this retelling is a must-read for crime buffs and Shakespeare fanatics alike.

Bleak, brilliant and utterly riveting, this is the Macbeth retelling you never knew you always wanted!

"Majestically satisfying...a deliciously oppressive page-turner" -- Steven Poole * Guardian *
"Immensely enjoyable and gloriously dark... He has accomplished that toughest of literary feats: putting his own unmistakable mark on one of Shakespeare's most celebrated plays" -- Matt Gibson * Daily Express *
"Inventive and deeply satisfying... a dark but ultimately hopeful Macbeth, one suited to our own troubled times" -- James Shapiro * New York Times Book Review *
"Nesbo makes excellent use of all the atmosphere of his genre, and the stakes at play are every bit as convincing as those in the original... This is Nesbo doing what he's good at" -- Lucy Scholes * Independent *
"Macbeth as a SWAT team leader. His wife as a former prostitute. The three witches as drug dealers. It's Shakespeare's darkest tale -- reimagined by the king of Nordic noir" -- Graeme Thomson * Mail on Sunday *
