Please Judge This Book by its Cover, Pleads One US Publisher

We’re not surprised that one publisher after the next proclaims that it’s their Scandinavian crime fiction author who will be recognized as “the next Stieg Larsson.”

But Dutton thinks it has found an even more clever way to hook their author on to the Larsson bandwagon: imitate one of the trilogy’s cover designs, from typeface to the striking color combinations. Of course, it’s not precisely the same, so perhaps the publisher would rather have us think “inspired by.” Or just a coincidence. Or?
