We are happy to announce that Susanna Alakoski is granted the Göran Palm Award! She is granted the award for her ability to flip the perspective on society and dissect the darker side of the Swedish model through her writing.
The Golden Cage, released last thursday, became the top streamed audio book on streaming service BookBeat this weekend. Läckbergs latest stod for over 14% of all streamed hours and no book on the streaming service have ever reached those levels that quickly before.
The book is not only being streamed a lot but listeners seem to enjoy it as well with it currently sitting at a 4,2 out of 5 review score on BookBeat. “It’s an amazing start for Camilla Läckbergs latest series” says Anna Riklund, Head of Content Curation at BookBeat.
On the 4th of April, ‘The Lost Village‘ by Camilla Sten was out in bookstores here in Sweden. It has already become a huge success, sold to 15 countries and a movie deal before publishing.
The magazine Femina reviewed the book saying it is “an excellent thriller” and BTJ says it is “just brilliantly written“.
The story is set in the small mining town of Silvertjärn, where in the 1950’s the entire population of the city disappeares without a trace.
Alice’s grandmother lost her whole family in that mysterious accident and has now gathered a group of friends to film a documentary of the ghost town and find out what really happened.
They are the first in fifty years to step foot in Silvertjärn, though once they arrive they slowly realize that might not be the case…
And on April the 2nd Camilla had her release party for the book. It was a great event where we got to celebrate Camilla and her great accomplishments!

It’s very exciting to see that The Lost Village is finally out and it’s even more exciting to see such a positive reception from critics and readers alike.
