Leena Lehtolainen’s My First Murder, the first title in the best-selling Maria Kallio series, was published in Russia. AST, one of Russia’s biggest publishers, acquired the Russian language rights to the title in July 2010 and published the Russian edition, Мое первое убийство, a few weeks ago.
Also the second Maria Kallio title will be available for Russian readers in a few months, when AST publishes Her Place in early 2012.
Lehtolainen is one of Finland’s most successful international authors with over 1,8 million copies sold internationally. Rights to her works have been sold to 23 languages so far.
