Here it is, the second novel in the Beier-saga, in it’s Greek version.
Thanks to publisher Patakis for letting all Greek crime-lovers take part in Fredrik and Kafa’s journey (great artwork on the cover, by the way), and to my friend, translator Krystalli Glyniadaki, for an incredible job!
The Beier-trilogy is dominating the Norwegian bestseller list.
After the release of the third and final installment in the Beier-trilogy, The Cross I Bear (Korset), all three novels are on the bestseller lists.
This week Those Who Follow (Wienerbrorskapet) and As We Fall (Kalypso) climbed to an impressive NO. 2 and NO 3. on the paperback list, while The Cross I Bear is currently NO. 1 on the e-book list, NO. 11 on the hardcover list.
In Germany, where the second installment in the Beier-trilogy As We Fall (Der Bote) was released earlier this spring, it copied the success of it’s predecessor Those Who Follow (Der Hirte) and stayed several weeks on Der Spiegels list of bestsellers. Der Bote is already out in a second edition.
Kalypso, the second novel in the Beier-saga, will be released in Denmark February 8th.
Kalypso’s predecessor, Wienerbroderskabet, first met it’s Danish audience in 2016, and got excellent reviews. Wienerbroderskabet is now being re-released, with a new, elegant cover, matching the second novel in the saga.
Ingar will be visiting Northern Europe’s largest crime festival, Krimimessen in Horsens, in March. So that’s the place to be if you want to learn more about detective Fredrik Beier, his partner Kafa Iqbal and the grim realities they will have to face, investigating the mysterious fate of Kalypso.
As We Fall was released in Polish this February, titled Straceńcy.
Poland is the first country outside Norway to present the second part of the Fredrik Beier-saga to its crime reading audience. And the reception is overwhelming. Here are the words from ten leading literature bloggers:

The second thriller in the series, As we Fall (Norwegian title: Kalypso), is also doing very well among the releases of 2016, currently number 7 on the top ten list.
