MANY AMERICANSany Americans and other nationalities are very familiar with Swedish thriller writer Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy and the movies based on his trilogy. But there is another Swedish crime writer Camilla L?kberg (www.camillalackberg.com), who also has a very strong following internationally.
MS. L?kberg – who is one of Sweden’s youngest successful female writers in her genre, crime novels, and sixth bestselling novelist in Europe, ahead of both Henning Mankell and John Grisham – will be at The Swedish Church in New York for a reading, followed by Q&A and book signing on Monday, March 28, 2011, at 7 p.m.
SHE IS IN the U.S. to promote the release of the first book in her three book trilogy – “The Ice Princess” – will become available in paperback. She has been a #1 bestselling writer in France, Spain and Italy, and in all of Scandinavia. In Sweden, a country of only 9 million people, she has sold 3 million copies, and she is the most profitable native author in Swedish history. Worldwide she has sold more than 7 million copies in 25 languages.
FREE PRESS AND Pocket Books will publish simultaneous trade and mass market editions on March 29, 2011. Then in May 2011, Pegasus will publish “The Preacher” – the second book in L?kberg’s trilogy.
