Macbeth in a modern setting

Macbeth - Jo Nesbø

Jo Nesbo took on Maceth and set him in a law enforcement setting when men struggle to gain power through manipulation and even murder. 


It is so good. it almost read like a good theater play. 


Macbeth was SWAT leader. And there are drug lord who want him to be put into the position of police commissioner. Lady Macbeth wants so much for him to get ahead that she plans for him. Killing the obstacles so that Macbeth would be in power. 


The complexity of the dynamic of different key players, make it interesting enough when we are already familiar with the story itself. 


Highly recommended.
