Czech rights to Arto Paasilinna's hilarious GOD ALMIGHTY (Auta armias, WSOY 1989) sold to Hejkal!

In this title God, who is stressed out and overworked, goes away for a holiday leaving his post to a crane operator Pirjeri Ryynänen who takes the opportunity to reorganize the heaven in his own manner. Being God is not an easy job!

There are no limits to Paasilinna's imagination. GOD ALMIGHTY has been a bestseller in Finland, and it has been previously published in Dutch (Wereldbibliotheek), German (Lübbe), Norwegian (Aschehoug) and Swedish (Brombergs).
