We are glad to announce the 7th foreign sales for Laura Lindstedt’s My Friend Natalia. This time she has gone to Romania – to be published by wonderful Humanitas!
Estonian Max Seeck fans rejoice! Pegasus in Estonia has bought the rights for the third part ofDaniel Kuisma Trilogy – The Call of Hades. Estonians can read the whole trilogy already in 2020!
“Max Seeck’s trilogy’s third book “The Call of Hades” is a breakneck race against the clock that flows smoothly as a movie. Daniel Kuisma is back. His dramatic past during his peacekeeper years in Yugoslav wars has not let him free, and he is the only one who can save the world. Seeck is writing good and fast, you better read it in one go: a breathless ride between London, Zagreb, Arlanda and Helsinki. Three books. All quite different from one another. Even if each volume is complete in itself, one story links them all and only one man can make the journey. Guess who?”

Mia Kankimäki’s narrative nonfiction is now conquering Scandinavia! Following the Norwegian deal last week, we have now closed the sales for Danish rights too. The Women I Think About at Night will be published in Karen Blixen’s homeland by Bilgrav Publishing, where the editors fell in love with the book immediately.
”We are very excited about Mia Kankimäki’s The Women I Think About at Night. Mia’s tale about her inner and outer voyage in the footsteps of the historical women who inspire her – the Night Women – is unfiltered and liberating in a time where the overexposed idea about ’the perfect life’ is a suffocating straitjacket to many people.
We are convinced that Danish readers will enjoy reading about Mia’s perfectly imperfect life and be inspired by a women with the potential to become a Night Women in her own right.”
– Lone Svane, Editor, Bilgrav Publishing, Denmark
