Episode notes

A sleepy Norwegian village is where this week’s Book Club novel is set. The Kingdom is a thriller following two brothers reunited after the more gregarious of the two left to travel the world; on his return, the dark truth about their family legacy begins to unravel.    Author Jo Nesbo is a bestselling crime novelist, but he’s also been a premier league football player, in a successful band, and in the military. He joins Richard and Judy from Oslo to discuss the popularity of Scandi Noir, the specific tensions that can arise between brothers, and how humour can get lost in translation.   Simply head online to to browse the entire Early Summer Book Club collection, and use the code BOOKCLUB10 for a 10% discount.
