Deep Fjord sold to Germany and Poland before Norwegian Publication

September 20 2018

Ruth Lillegraven’s thriller debut Deep Fjord (Alt er mitt) is sold to Germany and Poland before the Norwegian publication. The editor Janina Dyballa in Ullstein Buchverlage says: “I am still captured by this masterful tale of revenge and its strong heroine” and welcomes Ruth into their list of Scandinavian crime authors such as Jo Nesbø and Camilla Läckberg.

Deep Fjord is that kind of book that makes you thrill from the very beginning. A unique Scandinavian thriller – it shows that justice is not always the right thing and the right thing is not always justice. A must-read bestseller!” says Monika Mielke, the acquiring editor at Wielka Litera Publishing House. They just bought all three books, as did Storytel in Poland.
