International interest is increasing, we are happy for announcing a two-book deal to Kiepenheuer & Witch in Germany. Helga Frese-Resch, the German publisher secured a two-book deal and says: “This is exactly what we have been looking for, a perfect family saga with elaborated characters, a page-turning pace, an intelligent plot, an interesting historical background, and a perfect setting”.

Aranzazu Sumalla, acquisition editor at Ediciones B (Penguin Random House Spain) secured world Spanish rights for Havets kirkegård, she says: “This is an intense novel with a captivating and relentless plot that keeps the reader hooked from the first pages on. All this is accompanied by compelling characters, vibrant and exotic settings as well as a solid historical background that allows us to discover some unknown pages from Norway’s past but also from the years that have carved 20th century Europe as we know it.”
