Finnish Fitz and the Fool in the future

26 Feb, 2018 filed under: Robin Hobb, Finland

Fool’s Assassin will be translated into Finnish under the title Narrin käskyläinen.

There is no publication date yet, but the publisher Otava has added the cover to their online database. Only the Farseer and the Tawny Man trilogies have been translated into Finnish previously. For many of Robin’s Finnish readers, this news means a long wait of 12 years is almost over.

This will be the 10th language the Fitz and the Fool trilogy will be translated into. All the existing editions and translations are listed in the wiki.

The Farseer trilogy is getting published in Danish for the first time, and Royal Assassin just came out in September in a hardcover edition from Cicero with the title Kongelig Snigmorder.

The first part, Die Gabe der K√∂nige was published in August, Der Bruder des Wolfs is out next week and the third volume, Der Erbe der Schatten, will follow on the 11th of December.

The first part of the split French edition of Assassin’s Fate with the title Sur les rives de l’Art is just around the corner, and will be available on the 25th of October from Pygmalion.

Right on its heels is the (full) Italian translation, L’assassino—L’ultima caccia, which will be out the 31st of October from Sperling & Kupfer.

Random quote

Little Brother, do not treat me as if I am already dead, or dying. If you see me that way, then I would rather truly be dead. You steal the now of my life away, when you constantly fear that tomorrow will bring my death. Your fears clutch cold at me and snatch all my pleasure in the day´s warmth from me.
