Jonas Jonasson To Publish New Book

Swedish author Jonas Jonasson has inked a book deal with HarperCollins’ Ecco imprint for his second novel, The Illiterate Who Could Count. Jonasson previously wrote the bestseller, The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window And Disappeared.

Publication is set for fall 2014. Carina Barndt at Barndt New Agency negotiated the deal with Ecco publisher Daniel Halpern. Here’s more about the book:

Jonasson now returns with an ironic look at fundamentalism in all its guises. The new novel is a trip that takes us from the shelters of Soweto to a potato van in Sweden with a cast of incredibly strange people. The 100 Year Old Man was an international success that sold more than 1 million copies in the UK, Sweden and France, more than 2 million in Germany, and almost six million copies, in total, worldwide. THE ILLITERATE WHO COULD COUNT will be published by Ecco, in the Fall of 2014, as well as by HarperCollins Canada and 4th Estate in the UK.
