Publisher's Summary

He's the best cop they've got.

When a drug bust turns into a bloodbath, it's up to Inspector Macbeth and his team to clean up the mess.

He's also an ex-drug addict with a troubled past.

He's rewarded for his success. Power. Money. Respect. They're all within reach.

But a man like him won't get to the top.

Plagued by hallucinations and paranoia, Macbeth starts to unravel. He's convinced he won't get what is rightfully his.

Unless he kills for it.

Terrible Scottish accent through

There is only one reader with a forced Scottish accent which is really tiring to listen to.

Another brillitany reimagining by Hogarth

A superb story, tightly written to keep you resetting the sleep timer as you just cant stop listening. The narrator is superb. He has created perfect characters. Highly recommend this and the entire Hogarth series.

Brilliant

As much as I missed Sean barret Reading it, the narrator was absolutely brilliant.. I’m a huge fan of the harry hole books, but I think this is actually better.. the transference of placing Macbeth into 70’s (Glasgow) - it’s never named..but pretty clear...was very clever with the perfect intonation of all the classic Macbeth beats. I thoroughly enjoyed this and sacrificed a few hours sleep to finish it

Poor

Give up on it, sounded like an amalgamation of authors doing a parody on Scottish crime writing

Dull, far fetched and childlike in it storyline...

Really disappointed, I liked the Snowman, so thought I’d give this a go. This is the first book I have EVER given up on! The storyline read as if planned in a rush, and made little sense. Maybe it would have improved if I’d persevered... but I doubt it.

not as good as I'd hoped

I was disappointed with this book as I found it very difficult to follow. I really enjoyed the Harry Hole stories and thought this would be just as good.

Not what I was expecting and a disappointment

This was a disappointment and far from the book I was expecting. I have read all Jo Nesbo books and I wonder if this is a book he wrote a long time ago but didn’t publish.

I struggled to accept the transformation of the characters in the short period of time and whilst there were moments that shocked I was left unmoved by the whole thing.

In my opinion Jo should stick to the tried and trusted format and if not move on from this one.

Gritty, violent and surprising

A story of different paces with a quick start then a slow middle culminating in a speedy end. We'll worth a listen

Brilliant

Jo Nesbo is an excellent writer and you could enjoy this book even if you hadn't seen or read Macbeth. I have seen it but I'm going to see it soon and I think I will get more out of the play by having read this. Nesbo is great at writing drama and action but also making you recognise the motivations and humanity of the characters.

A modern take on the original.

This was a fantastic version of Shakespeare’s Macbeth- grim, poetic, vengeful, and full of pathos. And even if you’ve never seen, heard or read the original, it is still a cracking good story. The narrator was amazing, too - I found his reading absolutely riveting.
I’ve always enjoyed Jo Nesbo, and this is quite a departure for him, in both style and content. I think it works incredibly well, though.

Macbeth with modern twist

Strong entrance, then story slows down a bit to gradually build up for the big finally. Enjoyable book to listen.

First Nesbo book read

Very very well narrated .. struggled to visualize it being set in Norway with Scottish narrator , names and locations. But that did not detract from Derek Riddells narration. Did find the book a little far fetched, but it still held my attention right to the end . Off now to start the Harry Hole series
