His Dutch publisher De Fontein has acquired books 4-6 (The Shamed, The Liberator, The Staged), thus completing the series! The deal was concluded by Anna Kappauf at Elina Ahlback Literary Agency.

The RIVER DELTA series by Arttu Tuominen has seen commercial success and garnered praise from readers and critics alike, both at home and abroad. Set in the city of Pori by the Gulf of Bothnia, a Finnish police unit has to solve crimes that force them to consider their own acts and values. The series has sold to 7 territories, and each book can be read as a standalone.

The series has risen to Spiegel Bestselling list in Germany and book #2, JEOPARDY, won the Palle Rosenkrantz Award 2022!

“They are fierce, these Finns, and this year, one of their best crime writers, Arttu Tuominen is awarded the Rosenkrantz Prize for Sendebuddet (Jeopardy) […] Tuominen’s writing is like moonshine when writing about brutally bitter souls.”
– Palle Rosenkrantz Prize jury statement
