Jo Nesbo and Johanna Schneller: The Kingdom

OnePage Series Web Banner

Prolific Norwegian crime novelist, Jo Nesbo returns with an evocative psychological thriller filled with fraternal envy in his newest novel The Kingdom. 

After the tragic death of their parents in a car accident, Roy takes on the paternal role, watching over his younger and more impulsive brother Carl. Roy dreams of building a quiet life in their mountainous Norwegian hometown while Carl aches for bigger things elsewhere and decides to leave for Canada. After many years, Carl returns with wild dreams of developing their family land alongside his fierce new wife Shannon. Carl’s sudden reappearance threatens Roy’s serene life as family secrets are unearthed and their brotherly bond is unraveled.

Jo Nesbo discusses his new novel The Kingdom with Globe and Mail contributing writer and columnist Johanna Schneller.
