THE GOLDEN CAGE BY CAMILLA LÄCKBERG IS NOW OUT IN THE US!

There has been a buzz about this book for the last couple of weeks with recommendations and reviews in PureWow, Popsugar, Oprah Magazine, OK! Magazine, Buzzfeed,  The Washington Times and many more and finally the day is here, the US release day for The Golden Cage by Camilla Läckberg.

Review from Oprah Magazine:

“The doyenne of Swedish crime fiction serves up a propulsive tale of a scorned woman who seeks to crush the husband who betrayed her and gets back at him by surreptitiously stealing his multimillion-dollar company out from under him. There’s enough haute couture, Cava, and hot sex to sate a devotee of romance fiction, but the real satisfaction comes in watching our heroine reclaim her fierceness.”

This is the first book about Faye and we are thrilled to see the book sweep across the US and captivate readers just as it has done in Sweden and the rest of the world!
As the planned tour in US has been modified to our current world, Camilla will be joining several online events, see her tour card for mer information.

Stay tuned for more exciting reviews and news about this fantastic book and release in the US!

THE SECOND BOOK IN SARA BLÆDEL’S THE ‘FAMILY SECRETS’ TRILOGY OUT IN SWEDEN

A woman’s murder is only the beginning as a daughter races to unravel the maze of secrets her father left behind–before she becomes the next victim–in the latest emotionally gripping novel from Sara Blaedel, #1 internationally bestselling author with over 3 million copies sold worldwide. Out in Sweden 5th of June.

After suddenly inheriting a funeral home from her father–who she hadn’t heard from in decades–Ilka Jensen has impulsively abandoned her quiet life in Denmark to visit the small town in rural Wisconsin where her father lived. There, she’s devastated to discover her father’s second family: a stepmother and two half sisters she never knew existed. And who aren’t the least bit welcoming, despite Ilka’s efforts to reach out.

Then a local woman is killed, seemingly the unfortunate victim of a home invasion turned violent. But when Ilka learns that the woman knew her father, it becomes increasingly clear that she may not have been a completely random victim after all.

The more Ilka digs into her father’s past, the more deeply entangled she becomes in a family drama that has spanned decades and claimed more than one life–and she may be the next victim…

Ilkas arv‘ is the second book in the ‘Family Secrets’ trilogy.

Kerstin Rydén rates the novel 4 out of 5 in her BTJ-review (nr 12, 2020) and writes:

Ilka has stayed in the US and continues to try and solve the economic issues of the funeral parlor, while the mysteries thickens. […] In the search for truth, Ilka becomes involved in shady business, assault and murder, most of it with connections to the father’s American family. […] The novel ends with not just one, but two completely unexpected cliffhangers. This well written and brilliantly translated book is, in regards to the content, darker and has a considerably stronger momentum and higher level of suspense than the first part. As a reader, you immediately long for the sequel.

The book is available on AdlibrisBokus and Akademibokhandeln.

Happy Holidays from Nordin Agency

WELCOME TO NORDIN AGENCY, MOHLIN & NYSTRÖM!

Therese Bohman and Andrzej Tichý shortlisted for the August Prize 2016

Nordin Agency congratulates Andrzej Tichý and Therese Bohman, both of which have been nominated for the August Prize 2016. Their novels Wretchedness (Eländet) and Eventide (Aftonland) represent the best in Swedish contemporary fiction.

Eventide is Therese Bohman’s third novel. Through serene prose, Bohman tells the story of an art professor who is looking for freedom, but only seems to find loneliness. An ideological novel where our protagonist is trying to find a way to be her own individual without adjusting to anyone else’s ideals.

The jury’s motivation for Eventide:
“The night is closing in over Stockholm and it’s late at Frescati. Karolina is a newly separated art professor supervising a student with a sensational approach to a female symbolist. She uses sex, wine and decadent art to move between the contemporaries whose company she is unhappy with. Her class trip has reinforced her loneliness and the sweetness of revenge is all that remains. Therese Bohman has written a perceptive novel of ideas, it’s delicate and seemingly digestible.”

Through Wretchedness, Andrzej Tichý tells a visceral and urgent story about a young cellist forced to confront suppressed memories of his upbringing in the suburbs of Malmö. His experimental prose and beautiful character depiction enhance the political undertone of this brilliant novel.

The jury’s motivation for Wretchedness:
“One morning a young cellist meets himself – or someone he could have been – in the form of a beggar. From a repressed past rises a flow of voices, which testifies to vulnerability, abuse and violence. What should survivors do with their history? Can you be in solidarity with the friends you left behind? Andrzej Tichý depicts a miserable reality in a hard-hitting form. His polyphonic novel has a hard, rhythmic language and an inexorable fury.”

Congratulations to both of these extremely talented authors!

The August Prize is named after the famous Swedish author August Strindberg, and is one of the most celebrated and prestigious literary prizes in Sweden.
