Nesbø's Golden Touch

It's spring break! Time to grab a good book and hit a sunny beach or cozy couch. And it's a great time to take your reading cues from the Norwegians and pick up some påskekrim, or Easter crime.

Norway's premiere crime writer, Jø Nesbø, seems to be at the top of his game these days. Fans love his popular Harry Hole series, plus he's got a series of children's books to his credit, not to mention movie deals. Who says crime doesn't pay? Nesbø sells a book every 23 seconds.

And now diehard Nesbø fans also will be happy to know that the author is adding television to his list of credits with the NBC series "I Am Victor" in the works. The series, based on an upcoming Nesbø novel, will star John Stamos of "ER" and "Glee" fame.

Anya Britzius, associate editor of Viking, caught up with Nesbø when he was in St. Paul recently. Don't miss her interview in the magazine's March issue, where the author discusses storytelling, character development, movie deals and much more!
