US rights to Steve Sem-Sandberg’s upcoming novel DE UTVALDA (The Chosen Ones) have been sold to Farrar, Strauss & Giroux. They successfully published the author’s very powerful novel The Emperor of Lies in 2011 and we are happy to be able to continue working with them for this authorship.
When the Soviet Union collapsed the country’s assets were sold to a select clique of wily Russians who became incredibly wealthy in the process. The predatory economy that grew out of this included everything from corruption, criminality, kidnappings and murders. One person who has seen the negatives is Paul Leander-Engström and it is his experiences that are the basis for a bloody, breakneck story about financial sharks, oligarchs, dictatorial politicians and Swedish businessmen.
