Two beautiful editions of Lars Mytting’s books arrived in the agency: The Polish translation of SØSTERKLOKKENE and the Czech translation of SVØM MED DEM SOM DRUKNER.
Furthermore, on the 3rd of March, the English translation of HEKNEVEVEN (THE REINDEER HUNTERS) will be published in Great Britain. The Swedish edition of HEKNEVEVEN won’t be published before may, but the Swedish Library Agency Btj already has a lot of praise for the book and it’s author:
“Mytting is a brilliant storyteller with an effortless writing that resonates in the soul, in the reader and in the main characters of the book. This novel is worth to read and re-read!”
We are excited to represent the Swedish crime writer Malin Thunberg Schunke worldwide!
The associate professor of criminal law is able to deliver a „hair-raising plot … with a high sense of urgency“ (Aftonbladet) and „suspense at the highest level“ (Femina). Her debut novel ETT HÖGRE SYFTE (A HIGHER PURPOSE) awarded „Best Debut Novel of the Year 2019“ by The Swedish Crime Academy. Her debut also marked the beginning of a series of independent titles about the prosecutors Esther Edh and Fabia Moretti, which has so far sold over 50,000 copies in Sweden.
Malin Thunberg Schunke’s most recent title BLIND VREDE (BLIND FURY, May 2022) is a dramatic and multi-faceted thriller about the explosive anger hidden just below the surface of society: A series of horrifically violent crimes connected to protest marches and demonstrations spread fear among the public and concern among the police. A certain symbol starts appearing at crime scenes all over Europe, suggesting that an international group of radical activists might be at work … At Eurojust, the EU Agency for Criminal Justice in The Hague, an investigation team is appointed with Swedish prosecutor Esther Edh at the helm. The tracks soon lead to an animal rights organisation and a run-down country estate in southern Sweden, as well as to right-wing extremists in Germany and Denmark. As the international team of specialists is starting to connect the dots, a breathless battle against the clock begins in order to prevent more acts of violence.
