“We are thrilled that we will have opportunity to present Elina Backman to Polish readers. WHEN THE KING DIES is truly amazing – fast-paced, gripping, with relatable characters (who could be a better protagonist than Saana – TV and pizza addict who decides to change her life?). We can’t wait to see what happens next!”
Dominika Dudarew-Osiecka, editor, Czarna Owca, Poland

“Elina Backman is a very exciting addition to our crime list and we are very proud to be able to publish her. With the fantastic WHEN THE KING DIES and the plans for her second book already in development we have every confidence she is more than capable of becoming as popular as authors such as Jo Nesbø, Lars Kepler and Hjorth Rosenfeldt. Dutch and Flemish readers love high quality crime fiction from Scandinavia, and Elina Backman is one of the most exciting new voices we have recently come across.”
