Netflix options Hanna Jameson's dystopian thriller

Netflix has optioned rights to Hanna Jameson's dystopian thriller called The Last (Viking UK and Atria US).

Rights were acquired from Jonathan Sissons at Peters Fraser & Dunlop.

"Described as Station Eleven meets And Then There Were None, Jameson’s novel combines classic locked room murder mystery with high-concept thriller," reads the synopsis. "It follows the story of an American academic searching for the truth about a girl who has been murdered in his Swiss hotel in the aftermath of a nuclear war that has destroyed most of the Western world."

Netflix plans to develop The Last into a film which will be told in French, German, English and Japanese and will be available in 190 countries. 

Jameson (pictured) said: "Netflix have been producing innovative and exceptional projects. I am delighted to be working with them to bring my story to life."

Viking won a "hotly-contested" five-away auction ahead of the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2017 to publish the thriller.
