Grand Central & Little, Brown Unite Forces to Drive Literary Translations

Grand Central Publishing and Little, Brown Book Group will start working together to translate worldwide bestsellers into English and publish them in both the United States and the United Kingdom. Spokespeople for both publishers say that they made a decision to join forces and drive translation projects due to the celebrity status that foreign authors are gaining among English readers.

Det Fördolda, written by Swedish authors Michael Hjorth and Hans Rosenfeldt, will be the first thriller translated through this partnership. The English version will be called "Dark Secrets," after the TV series of the same name that aired in Sweden in 2010. It will also enjoy the great success of Swedish crossovers, such as Stieg Larsson's "Millennium Trilogy."
