While its unclear if there will be an eleventh book in his incredibly popular Harry Hole crime series, Norwegian author Jo Nesbø has a new stand-alone novel to tout, Son. For this foray, Nesbø introduces audiences to Sonny Lofthus, an inmate at the center of a web of high-level corruption. Nesbø, who is busing working on a retelling of MacBeth for Hogarth UK, and moonlights as the lead singer in rock band, stops in at PowerHouse Books tonight to speak about Son with Laura Miller of Salon and Sonny Mehta, Editor in Chief of Alfred A. Knopf. There is a $10 admission charge, but it can be used towards purchase of Nesbø’s new novel.
