Hodder acquires four Deon Meyer novels

29th July 2010

Afrikaans novelist Deon Meyer is to release four new titles through Hodder, the publisher has announced.

Thirteen Hours, Meyer's most recent work, was launched by Hodder in April to positive reviews and the firm hopes to emulate this success with the new novels.

Nick Sayers, publishing director at Hodder, commented: 'Deon is already a bestseller in many countries. With these new books, we will bring him to a much wider readership.'

He also claimed Meyer's sales figures and his nomination for the 2010 CWA International Dagger for the best translated crime novel demonstrate that the author is 'one of the finest crime thriller writers in the world'.

Meyer's Thirteen Hours ultimately failed to scoop the International Dagger, being beaten to the honour by The Darkest Room by Johan Theorin.

Tonino Benacquista's Badfellas, August Heat by Andrea Camilleri, Arnaldur Indridason's Hypothermia and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest by Stieg Larsson were also shortlisted for the GBP 1,000 prize.
