I’m not sure how it happened, but the paperback version of Paint the Devil is live two weeks before the kindle version comes out.
However, if you’re curious and want to find out more about this Scandinavian “bestseller” (Amazon Australia) – yes, I had to get that in – then you could have a two week headstart. The pre-order is still available for the kindle version, and it will stay at the pre-order price until the day of release.
Here are the links to the paperback. The kindle version can be found on the same page.
Until then, I’ll leave you with another short excerpt from the book:
Paint the Devil excerpt
The breeze is stronger now, blowing from the sea, lifting the salt tang from the waves and brushing the roofs and windows with fine crystals. Denmark is suffering. Inland farms are drying out faster than those along the coast. Thyrup has some luck, Bo thinks. But Thyrup has the wolf, and the environmentalists, the academics, and the so-called elite, sitting high on their morals, looking down, looking from afar, looking from Copenhagen. Christiansborg is a long way from Thyrup. They are at opposite ends of the country, almost parallel, on a direct line, but poles apart. They might as well be north and south.
Bo thinks of Belgium, and the headquarters of the European Union. Wonders how they can decide his fate in the jaws of the wolf.
“Experts,” Aage says, as he joins Bo beside the grave of Viktoria’s father.
“They are sending experts from Christiansborg. One, at least. A man and his daughter. They will be staying at the nature commission house, the one down by the beach.”
“How do you know?”
“Tilde Sørensen,” Aage says, and smiles. “She called the ministry for a comment, and the minister, Felix Poulsen, said he was sending a wolf expert to Thyrup. Can you believe it?”
“What will he do?”
“Investigate, I suppose.” Aage gestures at the gate. “I need a smoke. Walk with me.”
The kindle version of Paint the Devil is scheduled for release on October 28th, 2018.
