This month we see some more exciting TV news about Jo! Yellow Bird, the Swedish producer of the Stieg Larsson 'Millennium Trilogy' movies have announced that they're developing a Nesbo-conceived miniseries called 'Occupied.' The futuristic political thriller explores a not-so-far-fetched scenario in which Russia invades Norway to lay claim to its oil reserves. But the crux of the story revolves around how the inhabitants of a modern first-world nation might respond to becoming an occupied territory. You can find out more on Word & Film here.
If you're a fan of Jo's TV and film work don't forget to read his fantastic stand-alone thriller Headhunters, which was adapted into a very successful film in 2012.
