MacBeth by Jo Nesbo Review

This book is a novel based on Shakespeare novel Macbeth. I've never read the original, so I went into this book blindly and I'm glad I did! I was really surprised at the turn of events. This book is more a story of politics and power. It gives you an exaggerated version of what power can do to people. This book wasn't a page turner, but I definitely wanted to know more. It got so crazy I really was questioning what was going to happen next! I'm usually not much of a Shakespeare or political or historical books but I loved how Jo Nesbo's writes a story! It was not just about the politics and the power, it had action, friendships, love and a web of deceit. You could really feel the emotions in this book, and the way he paints the town is incredible. You really feel like you are in this gloomy, rainy, dark town. Highly recommend!

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
