Starred review in Publishers Weekly for Salla Simukka: “Fans of Nesbø and Larsson won’t be disappointed”

CaptureSallaJunWe are thrilled to announce that prior to its August U.S release, the first entry in Salla Simukka’s Snow White Trilogy, As Red as Blood, has earned a starred review from Publishers Weekly, the country’s premiere industry publication. Read the full review here.

“Finnish author Simukka creates a tough, self-sufficient heroine in 17-year old Lumikki Andersson in this first book in the Snow White Trilogy. The novel begins starkly, with a young woman’s freshly shed blood soaking the snow of a Finnish winter […] The teenagers of Simukka’s story [negotiate] a landscape that adults have created and then abandoned, cold as the Scandinavian winter; the warm heart at its center is the web of alliance they form. Fans of Nesbø and Larsson won’t be disappointed.”
Publishers Weekly, June 2, 2014

A global smash success, Simukka’s trilogy has thus far been sold in 43 territories. As Red as Blood will be published in August in the UK by Hot Key Books and in the U.S. by Amazon Publishing/Skyscape.
