This Spring 2020 we are excited to introduce new award-winning and bestselling Finnish authors for our international publishers:
Hanna-Riikka Kuisma and her Finlandia Prize nominated novel High-Rise, is not far from Dostoyevsky’s dreamy basement writings. Sara Medberg’s Charlotta is a Jane Austen inspired novel in 19th-century Turku. Finlandia-winner Johanna Sinisalo tells a modern horror story and family drama in her award-winning novel Strangers Inside. Pauliina Susi’s suspenseful mystery Pulse is set in the darkness of Lapland.
In Non-Fiction, award-winning journalist Jessikka Aro’s true stories from the Russian information warfare, Putin’s Trolls is a bestseller in Finland with over 17,000 copies sold – and rights sold in Poland, Estonia and Lithuania. Young genius, composer and inventor Perttu Pölönen in his bestseller Future Skills inspires us to open our imagination, which is the most important tool for predicting the future.
