Jo Nesbø's 7 favorite books

Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø is the author of the best-selling Harry Hole series.

One of his seven favorite books, as shared with The Week magazine:
Watchmen by Alan Moore, with illustrations by Dave Gibbons

Not your average graphic novel, this work about a group of flawed, over-the-hill crime fighters who are roused from retirement by the murder of a former associate is instead an ambitious literary project that takes the superhero genre seriously.
Read about another entry on Nesbo's list.

Watchmen also appears among Ian Rankin's six best books and Lev Grossman's top ten graphic novels list.
