A wonderful meeting with Kazuhiko Sasaki, Tommi Kinnunen's Japanese editor who visited us during his winter trip to Helsinki. Kinnunen's WHERE FOUR ROADS MEET (Neljäntienristeys, WSOY 2014 & Shincho-sha 2016) has been praised also in Japan - the readers love especially the way in which women are portrayed in the novel!

Timo Parvela's Ella-series is already on its 4th title in Latvia! Zvaigzne ABC's edition of "Ella in Lapland", skillfully translated by Ingrida Peldekse, has just been published. Zvaigzne has found the illustrations by Sabine Wilharm from the German Ella-books a perfect fit for their market.
And the German Ella is very happily skipping to school on her home territory too: the German paperback publisher dtv has published 12 Ella books to date, and Hanser is already on their 14th Ella, in hardcover. We especially delight in the fact that in addition to newer Ella books, the early ones keep on selling! dtv just took their 12th edition of "Ella and Friends 1" and the 9th edition of "Ella and Friends 2"! Horray!

The first praising review for Simo Hiltunen's IN SHEEP'S CLOTHING (Lampaan vaatteissa, WSOY 2015) from France is online!

COUP DE COEUR! J'ai adoré "Si vulnérable". (...) Ce roman mêle d'une façon parfaite les éléments d'une enquête de police avec une intrigue qui tient en haleine jusqu'au bout, la psychologie des adultes martyrisés pendant l'enfance et qui ont été capables ou pas de résilience pour avancer dans leur vie, la vie en Finlande. Croyez-moi, vous allez plonger dans ce roman et ne plus le lâcher !

The novel is due out in French on 8th February 2018 by Fleuve, translated by Anne Colin du Terrail. Read more: bit.ly/2mmvoux
