Helena’s Boudoir meets Jo Nesbo

nesbo in megaron athensOn Friday 18th September the Norwegian writer Jo Nesbo came to Athens in Greece. He appeared in the Athens Concert Hall “Megaron” in an event organized by his Greek publisher, the Norwegian Institute and Megaron Plus under the auspices of the Norwegian embassy in Athens.

Jo Nesbo is Norway’s most successful crime novelist and is considered the king of the Scandinavian crime literature. His books have sold more than 25.000.000 copies and they are published in more than 40 countries.

helena red dress stairs bookMy love for books equals my love for fashion as the size of my bookcases competes with the size of my closets!!! Who says that a bookworm girl can not be stylish, elegant and sexy??? Who says that a fashion loving girl only reads the fashion magazines?? It is considered very stylish nowadays to read a book while commuting, isn’t it??

So I was there with the other nesbomaniacs, as Nesbo’s fans are called.

On the contrary: the colour of the dress matched perfectly with the colour of Nesbo’s newest book, which was published just the day before! I styled it with white accessories that matched with its white-golden details!

full house for jo nesboThe hall was full. Almost 2.000 people from all over Greece came to see their favourite writer, who won us from the beginning with his simplicity and spontaneity. Dressed with a pair of jeans and a white t-shirt, which showed his muscular body, he looked like a teenager (and he is 55).
