Bara du (Obsession) passed over 25 000 copies sold!

17 May 2018

Swedish crime author Ninni Schulman, whose stand-alone OBSESSION was released by Forum on April 24, already sold over 25 000 copies!

Quotes from early reviews:

“well-written, elegantly composed, and suspenseful. With the just-published Obsession, Schulman does something utterly new.” Norra Skåne

“Here, Schulman steps off the well-trodden path and writes a book about something utterly different. And it turns out to work very well.” Smålandsposten

“Ragingly, uncannily good. /…/ Ninni Schulman’s stand-alone novel starts out like a happy fairytale, but soon something goes awry. The suspense slowly builds, and I greedily devour page after page to find out what’s going on. Who is deranged and whose experience is real?” TARA

”A very skillfully executed page-turner, both contemplative and eerily chilling”. BTJ

Rights are sold so far to Denmark (People’s Press), Norway (Cappelen Damm), Italy (Marsilio) and Poland (Sonia Draga).

Starred Review for Robert Karjel!

14 May 2018

Robert Karjel has received a starred review in Publishers Weekly for After the Monsoon. The US edition will be published by Harper Collins on the 3rd of July.

“Karjel’s excellent sequel to 2015’s The Swede finds Ernst Grip, a member of Sweden’s security police, attached to a raid on a suspected Somali terrorist cell in an immigrant Stockholm neighborhood. Normally an agent on the bodyguard detachment, the unenthusiastic Grip and a gung ho SWAT team break into an apartment, where they apprehend three men. The only piece of intel they glean happens later, under interrogation: a cryptic reference that one of the three makes to a terrorist known only as Yuhuudi (the Jew). Meanwhile, an army lieutenant with Swedish forces in Djibouti is shot dead at a shooting range, and Grip is dispatched to the Horn of Africa to investigate. His mission there is complicated by the kidnapping of a Swedish family from their sailboat by Somali pirates. Grip faces a host of dangers large and small before arriving at the morally complex solution to the lieutenant’s killing. No surprise, Yuhuudi turns out to have a role in Grip’s adventures. With its realistic characters, sophisticated plotting, and assured prose, this entry puts Karjel at the top of the thriller pack.”
