Jo Nesbo comes to Harrogate this April

As part of the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival this year, number one best-selling author Jo Nesbo will be appearing in Harrogate this April.  Full details below:

Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival

Harrogate Festival Launch

Can you believe it is only 150 days until the start of this year’s Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival. To celebrate we are announcing a very special launch event, which will take place on the 8th April at this year’s Festival venue, the Old Swan Hotel. Jo Nesbo had one of the largest events in the Festival’s history back in 2012 so we could not pass up on the opportunity to invite him back.
The number one best-selling author of the Harry Hole crime fiction series set in Oslo will visit Harrogate the day before the publication of his new thriller, Blood on Snow. Join the crime writer, rock star and former professional football player at this exclusive pre-publication event.

Jo will be discussing his new thriller Blood On Snow, his globally popular Harry Hole books, soon to be turned into a film, and much more. Don’t miss this special evening with the King of Scandinavian crime, and your chance to be one of the very first to get your hands on a copy of Blood on Snow as it is not officially released until the 9th April. Jo Nesbo will also be signing books after the event, and books will be available to buy on the evening from the on-site bookstore provided by WHSmith.

Tickets are available from 9.30am on Tuesday 17th February and will be priced at £13.00 per person. Please note that all bookings are subject to a £1.75 transaction fee.
