Nesbø's strong anti-authoritarian streak and concern for [[DistressedDamsel women in peril]] have earned him comparisons to the [[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy Millenium Trilogy]] by the late Stieg Larsson, although Nesbø's work tends to be less overtly {{Anvilicious}} than Larsson's. His plotting has also been highly praised. ''The Redbreast'' was voted the best Norwegian crime novel of all time by a poll of Norwegian readers, and ''The Bat'' won the Glass Key award for Best Nordic Crime Novel.
