News from Corvus of what’s coming in July:
THE BLIND GODDESS by Anne Holt published 10th July (crime fiction, trade paperback, £12.99, ISBN: 9780857892256)
Anne Holt is one of Scandinavia’s most successful crime writers. Her two crime series – featuring Johanne Vik and Hanne Wilhelmsen – have sold more than 5 million copies and are translated into twenty-five languages. With the publication of 1222, which went on to become a bestseller, Corvus introduced Hanne Wilhelmsen to the UK. The Times called it ‘an homage to Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple – or Miss Marple as a badass, paralysed Norwegian lesbian detective’. Publication of The Blind Goddess takes readers back to book one of the series to find out what led Hanne to her current life as a wheelchair bound detective. Never before published in English, The Blind Goddess delivers a superbly chilling story of corruption in the corridors of power.
