Max Seeck has been speaking at several events to celebrate the publication of his new novel, like the Helsinki Crime Festival (Dekkarifestivaalit) which was held in Helsinki on 22nd of September, where he talked about his books alongside detective novelists like Jens Henrik Jensen (DK), Arne Dahl (SE), Jonas Bonnier (SE), Leena Lehtolainen and Marko Hautala.

The first book in the series was recently published in Estonia and Iceland. In both countries, the reviews have been great.

“The book is captivating if you thirst for serious action. A great read for a rainy day.” – Eesti Päevaleht, Estonia

“The story is fantastic. It feels as if you are in the middle of the conflict where everybody is against everyone and you have no idea of who to trust. There is chaos and no exits in sights. The level of tension is so high you cannot put the book away.” – Morgunblaðið, Iceland

Max Seeck will be attending The Iceland Noir Festival in November, meeting readers and talking in a panel discussion titled “Go Berserk!”: these authors go berserk on the pages of their awesome crime thrillers. That sounds like a match!

About the The Call of Hades:

Four executed men are found in a Zagreb apartment. The place is owned by the U.K. government, but no one seems to know anything about the case. When Daniel Kuisma receives an unexpected guest from Southern Europe he hears something that makes him board the next plane to Zagreb: the lives of thousands of people might be at risk. Meanwhile Annika Lehto is recovering from an assault, but offers him all the help she can from her sickbed.
