We are very excited to announce that New York Times Bestselling Author Max Seeck is working on a new independent crime novel, MILO (working title)! And the good news don’t stop there, we are also thrilled to share that Bastei Lübbe have just acquired the German rights to Max Seeck’s new novel! The deal was negotiated by Anna Kappauf and Elina Ahlback at Elina Ahlback Literary Agency. Warmest Congratulations, Max Seeck and Bastei Lübbe!
MILO will be published by Tammi in Finland in September 2024. Rights for Max Seeck’s previous Jessica Niemi crime series have been sold into 40 territories and Hollywood: an international TV-show is in developement. Over 350,000 copies of his books have been sold in Finland alone. Book 3 in the series, THE LAST GRUDGE (orig. Kauna, Tammi 2021), is nominated for the Glass Key Award 2023 – the winner will be announced this summer.
Here is what Max Seeck said about writing MILO:
”I’m so very excited and grateful for the confidence and commitment by both Bastei Lübbe and the Ahlback Agency. This gives me a great boost to finish the novel and make it as good as I can.”
We believe MILO has all the potential to outdo Max Seeck’s already very impressive sales records – get in touch with us if you would like to receive first materials and acquire the rights!
