Head of Zeus wins Zander auction

Head of Zeus has acquired Swedish “fast-paced thriller” début The Swimmer by Joakim Zander after a heated auction.

The book about a father searching for his daughter was recently sold at auction in 18 countries including HarperCollins US, which bought the book for a seven-figure sum.

Editorial director Laura Palmer bought UK and Commonwealth rights as part of a two-book deal from Astri Von Arbrin Ahlander at The Ahlander Agency.

Head of Zeus will publish in hardback and e-book in July 2014.
