Camilla Läckberg on tour in the States

The reigning Queen of Swedish Crime will be making her first extensive U.S. tour in late March/early April. Tiina, who has just translated The Hidden Child, and I, translator of the first four books in the Fjällbacka series (The Ice Princess, The Preacher, The Stonecutter, and The Gallows Bird), will also be signing our translations at Camilla's appearance in Scottsdale, Arizona. Collectors: This will be your only chance this year to acquire her books signed by both author and translator.

We hope to see you at Poisoned Pen Bookstore, 4014 N Goldwater Blvd # 101, Scottsdale, AZ 85251-4344 at 7 pm on Wednesday, March 30. For more info call the bookstore at (480) 947-2974 or see their website here. See you there! (Sorry, I don't know the other cities on her 10-city tour except New York and Denver.)


  1. Yes--I have just finished The Gallows
    Bird--very readable translation--as
    I said in my review on www.amazon.co.uk
    Had you had enough of translating Camilla-
    and thought Tiina should have a go?
    Looking forward to reading Tiina's
    new Jungstedt and your Peter Prange --as
    soon as they are out in the UK

  2. Hi Simon,
    No, I was booked up when The Hidden Child came in, and Tiina had time, so she took it on. Now I'm working on Camilla #6, The Mermaid.
    So far no UK interest in Prange, so please hype it to influential publishing types. It's a very good historical novel of Paris in the 18th century, Diderot and his crowd, his mistress Sophie Volland, and the whole saga of the Encyclopaedia. I look forward to doing more by Peter Prange.
    Now bidding on a relatively new crime author from Germany, and waiting for another bestseller to arrive, so I probably won't be doing much Swedish for the next half year.

  3. Steve,
    Thanks for that .
    Amazon UK --must be selling the USA edition
    of Prange as of 23/6/11.

    1. I have no idea why Scandinavian crime fiction is so popular, but thanks for the link to your article. I'm already translating German crime fiction in preparation for the day when the Nordic boom fizzles out. Watch for SNOW WHITE MUST DIE by Nele Neuhaus!
