Two-book deal in Norway for Johanne Hildebrandt and her Valhalla series

We are happy to announce that The first two books, Sigrid and Estrid, in Johannes Hildebrandt‘s popular Valhalla series have been sold to Aschehoug in Norway. Acquiring editor Gunn Reinertsen Næss had this to say about the author and her series:

Hildebrandt’s books have a fast tempo, plain and simple. She writes with great insight, a lot of energy and that little bit extra. We believe in the Valhalla universe, and in the people that inhabit it.

Thomas Engström & Olle Lönnaeus nominated for the award of Best Swedish Crime Novel 2014

This past weekend, during the annual Crime Festival in Sundsvall The Swedish Crime Academy  announced their shortlist for Best Swedish Crime Novel 2014 and we’re happy to see not one, but two of Nordin Agency’s authors as strong contenders; Söder om Helvetet (To Hell and Gone) by Thomas Engström and Jonny Liljas skuld (The Payback – Johnny Lilja’s Dilemma) by Olle Lönnaeus.

Both authors have received great praise for their books and last year Thomas Engström won the award for Best Crime Debut with Väster om friheten (The Western Reach of Hell), a prize awarded to Olle Lönnaeus in 2009 for his novel Det som ska sonas (Atonement)

Congratulations to Thomas  and Olle  – and best of luck!

The winner will be announced on the 22th November.
