Competition! Jo Nesbo Special Event with The Theakstons Crime Festival

Competition! Jo Nesbo Special Event with The Theakstons Crime Festival

Not only will you get to hear all about his latest novel from the man himself, but we’ll be selling advanced copies of Blood on Snow on the night – before the official release date on the 9th April. So you can be one of the first to get your hands on the new Jo Nesbo book, and there will also be a chance to get your copy signed by Jo Nesbo at the event too.

Tickets are on sale now at £13 and the event takes place at 7.30pm on Wednesday 8th April 2015 at The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate. Take a look at Barry Forshaw’s article about Jo Nesbo on the Harrogate International Festivals website for more information about this Scandinavian crime author.

A perfect warm up for The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Festival in July, there will be plenty of Nordic Noir to come during the main weekend too with a special event on the new book in the Millennium series by Stieg Larsson and crime authors such as Arnaldur Indridason, Peter James, Sarah Hilary and much more due to make an appearance.

To celebrate The Theakstons Crime Festival this year, we’ve got a pair of tickets to the Jo Nesbo event to give away, plus an overnight stay at the Old Swan Hotel afterwards. To enter, simply share or re-tweet any of our recent Facebook or Twitter posts about The Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Festival. You have until Wednesday 1st April to enter.

Good luck!
