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.

Random quote

Because of the magic. Because you are more herdfolk than you know. You thought you might be a man-killer. You aren´t. You fought Joboam like you were wrestling a pregnant vaja. But for my magic, he´d have killed you. There is no murder in you.
