Is Jo Nesbo the next Stieg Larsson? They both write Scandinavian mystery-noir and have already hit it big in their home country. Difference is that Nesbo is Norwegian instead of Scandinavian — and, well, he’s still alive.

Meet Regine — the inventor of disco! The 81-year-old diva is now starring in “Follies.”
