We are very excited to announce the fourth translation deal for Max Seeck and his bestselling thriller FAITHFUL READER (Uskollinen lukija, Tammi, August 2019).
The Lithuanian rights were sold in a pre-empt to Baltos lankos. Baltos lankos is also a Lithuanian publisher for Jo Nesbø, Paula Hawkins and A. J. Finn.
FAITHFUL READER is a psychological thriller from a bestselling author Max Seeck, where a strong female detective chases a serial killer.
Previously, the rights have been sold to Grada in Czech Republic, Pegasus in Estonia and Bastei Lübbe in Germany.
I read Max Seeck’s FAITHFUL READER in a day – and a night. I was blown away immediately. And who needs sleep anyway when you have the privilege to read a manuscript like this? FAITHFUL READER is more than very, very good. It has a quality, tension and a level of suspense which are just exceptional. In every chapter I was convinced that Max did not just want to tell a dramatic story. I was certain that he had a vision. A vision to add something extraordinary to the world of thrillers and crime fiction, something that I have not seen in a suspense novel for many, many years. Bastei Lübbe is proud and honoured to share Max‘ vision as his German publisher. And I wish I could read this story for the first time again.
