Jo Nesbø to Pen Crime Noir Version of Macbeth

jonesboNorwegian author Jo Nesbø, author of the Harry Hole series, is working on a crime noir version of Macbeth.

The project is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare series, in which authors including Margaret Atwood, Jeanette Winterson and Howard Jacobson, have been commissioned to adapt classic Shakespeare plays.

The Guardian has more:

‘A thriller about the struggle for power, set both in a gloomy, stormy crime noir-like setting and in a dark, paranoid human mind,’ said Nesbø of Macbeth. ‘A main character who has the moral code and the corrupted mind, the personal strength and the emotional weakness, the ambition and the doubts to go either way … No, it does not feel too far from home.’
