News from Quercus

Petrona and I had a very nice lunch date yesterday with the publicity department from Quercus. As well as sparkling conversation and a super Italian meal, they gave us a proof of January's 'The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' by Stieg Larsson and their Spring 2008 catelogue.

They also let slip that Colin Cotterill and Nigel McCrery will be attending next year's Harrogate Crime Writing Festival.

Forthcoming titles from British and European authors are:-

January

The Natural Disorder of Things by Andrea Canobbio (printed in the US in 2006)
Death in Breslau by Marek Krajewski
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

February

A Quiet Flame by Philip Kerr (Bernie Gunther)

March

Romanno Bridge by Andrew Greig

May

The First Fingerprint by Xavier-Marie Bonnot
Disco for the Departed by Colin Cotterill

June

The Duke's Agent by Rebecca Jenkins (first published in 1997)
The Murder Village by Andrea Maria Schenkel
The Outcast by Michael Walters

It was a lovely lunch, Karen, especially seeing you. Looking forward to seeing what you make of the Larsson book.
I hope the train was well-driven on the way back!

This is all good news from Quercus, but isn't "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" the second in the three book Millenium series?

I just looked it up according to amazon "Men who hate women" the first book is out in January.
I am so confused by Scandinavian authors and their translations being out of order

Euro Crime said...

Men Who Hate Women was the original (literal and possibly US?) title for the first book in the series which has now been changed to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. #2 is to be The Girl Who Played With Fire (afaik).

Yes I can't believe that the new Nesbo will be the 4th rather than the 6th (aargh!!).
