Publishers Weekly reported yesterday that James Patterson, who it says, in quite possibly the understatement of the year, is "no stranger to collaboration", will co-write with Swedish crime novelist Liza Marklund a thriller to be published in 2010. Marklund is a bestseller in her native Sweden but is little known in the US. Her mystery series features crime reporter Annika Bengtzon.
The untitled book is expected to be set largely in Stockholm. No details about publication in the US are currently available.
As we reported a week or so ago, Patterson is also co-writing a "chain thriller" with 28 other contributing writers to be published in Australia. Each chapter of this book will be available to read online starting March 20, 2009.
