The Return - Hakan Nesser

I'm currently reading a proof copy of the UK edition of 'The Return' which is due out next month. The US edition came out in March.

On the Random House website you can read an extract from Chapter One.

If you live on the West Coast of the US you night like to check out Hakan Nesser's tour schedule which has four events in CA and one in Seattle.

'The Return' is the third in the Van Veeteren series following on from last year's CWA International Dagger nominee, 'Borkmann's Point'.

I asked your question: No, the four authors will not tour the UK, at least not this time!

So which is the second? I have one bookmarked in Amazon, but can't remember if it is the Return or the second. I sure hope they are publishing the second before the third. There is something about these Scandinavian books that means the publishers feel compelled to translate them out of order.
Pity about Peter's tour news, if the Scandinavians came to the UK, even I might go.

So what do you reckon the chances are of getting them to Australia :)

I say send them to Australia. They'll have no time to write if they're touring all the time, but who cares? Several of them have nice, big backlogs of work waiting to be translated into English. That could keep us going for a while.
