Spring 2017 fiction & non-fiction rights guides and highlights

It’s spring-time, the book fair season is fast approaching and we are happy to present you with our new, hand-picked selection of the best fiction & non-fiction from Finland. Browse our new catalog here! 

We have recently signed three young, award-winning fiction writers: Iida Rauma, Laura Gustafsson and Leena Parkkinen. In addition to their novels, we’re excited to introduce you to Katja Pantzar’s narrative non-fiction title, Nordic Kiss, about Finnish lifestyle and the new catchword, sisu.

On the crime side, there’s been a fresh crop of murders. The Angels of Hammurabi, the runaway debut hit by winner of the Debut Thriller of the Year Award 2017 Max Seeck, will be followed by Mephisto’s Touch in August. Glass Key Award 2017 nominee Pauliina Susi’s intriguing new thriller, Siren, takes place on the Mediterranean. And, Leena Lehtolainen, ‘Finland’s answer to Henning Mankell’, returns with a new Maria Kallio case – also out in August.

Then, of course, there are the bestselling and award-winning favorites, many of which are now available in full English translation. Enjoy browsing and please do get in touch to request reading materials for titles that take your interest!

Of course we will attend the London Book Fair: see you in IRC, tables 6i and 6h!
