Set in the 1970s in a run-down, rainy, industrial town, Jo Nesbo's Macbeth centers around a police force struggling to shed an incessant drug problem. Duncan, chief of police, is idealistic and visionary, a dream to the townspeople but a nightmare for criminals. The drug trade is ruled by two drug lords, one of whom - a master of manipulation named Hecate - has connections with the highest in power and plans to use them to get his way.
Hecate's plot hinges on steadily, insidiously manipulating Inspector Macbeth: the head of SWAT and a man already susceptible to violent and paranoid tendencies. What follows is a pause-resisting story of love and guilt, political ambition, and greed for more, exploring the darkest corners of human nature and the aspirations of the criminal mind.

Great story, listen to the sample first
I thought the story was great, and I love Nesbo's novels. The only difference with this was a new narrator, who if you're not used to a narrator with an accent, may be difficult to follow. I would recommend listening to the Sample of the audiobook to see if it's right for you before purchasing. Great overall though!

I’ve read all of Nesbo’s books and loved them. This one was wierd. Is he changing his style to more otherworldly? Just strange, had to keep repeating sections to understand what was happening. Narrator was excellent but I would not buy this book again.
