Amazon Charts: The Man Who Died Twice murders the competition

Richard Osman's The Man Who Died Twice (Penguin) has claimed the Amazon Charts' Most-Sold: Fiction top spot, with its predecessor The Thursday Murder Club bouncing four places up the chart to join it in second.

The sequel reigned atop the chart the same week it became one of the fastest-selling Adult Fiction titles of all time through Nielsen BookScan's Total Consumer Market, selling 114,202 copies in its first week on sale.

YouTubers Mark and Roxane Hoyle's Greg the Sausage Roll: Santa's Little Helper (Puffin), illustrated by Gareth Conway, was the most eagerly awaited title in the Most-Sold: Fiction ranking according to Amazon, charting in fifth place a good six weeks ahead of its publication.

Bob Mortimer's And Away... (Gallery) topped the Most-Sold: Non-Fiction ranking, as Peter Kay's The Sound of Laughter (Arrow), first published in 2007, charted second. Miriam Margoyles' This Much is True (John Murray) debuted in third place.
