Thalia Magazine

In the latest edition of Thalia Magazine, which the huge book store chain publishes, there's an article about Das Sonnenkreuz in a section about Iceland being the honorary guest in the Frankfurt Book Fair this year.

The article says among other things: "In Iceland books are read a great deal, especially the books by Ottar Martin Nordfjord ... Now we are in luck, Das Sonnenkreuz can for the first time be read in German. With this fast-paced thriller about a secret society, a treasure and a legendary temple the young author proves once again that he's one of the best crime writers in his country."

Needless to say I'm very happy about this, since Thalia has almost 300 stores in Germany, Switzerland and Austria and his currently the biggest bookseller in the German speaking world.
