The Iron Chariot by Stein Riverton and The Forest Lake Mystery by Palle Rosenkrantz are widely acknowledged as the two founding classics of Scandi crime-writing. Originally published in the first decade of the twentieth century, in Norwegian and Danish respectively, they helped define the detective novel. Each author gave his name to his country's main crime-writing awards.

We’re publishing them in English-language paperback for the first time, in new translations. In a fantastic pre-launch offer, we're offering both for the price of one. Click on the titles above to go to their pages, and add the discount code SCANDI at the checkout. As always, UK p&p is free. The offer ends on 14 November.

In very different mood, Christmas is fast approaching and we're celebrating it with The Bad Mother’s Christmas, a brand new romantic comedy by Suzy K Quinn. It's the fourth in her bestselling series. The first three have been huge bestsellers on Kindle, and are a cross between Bridget Jones's Diary and Why Mummy Drinks.

We've just published them all in paperback, and we're marking the occasion with a great offer: buy two, get two free. Just follow all the buying links (The Bad Mother’s Diary, The Bad Mother’s Detox and The Bad Mother’s Holiday) and enter the code BADMUM at the checkout. UK p&p is free.
