The success continues for best-selling author Thomas Erikson

The success enjoyed by author Thomas Erikson and his book Surrounded by Idiots (published by Hoi) could hardly have passed anyone by. This success has now been repeated by the author’s follow-up, Surrounded by Psychopaths (Forum), which has sold over 100,000 copies since its publication in summer 2017.

Thomas Erikson and his book Surrounded by Idiots have taken Sweden by storm. The author’s follow-up, Surrounded by Psychopaths is now enjoying the spotlight having passed sales on 100,000 last week.

It is unusual for a book to exceed sales of 100,000 within a year. Only a couple of nonfiction books achieve this each year in Sweden and Thomas has now succeeded in doing so two years in a row. This is a fabulous achievement and one of which we are extremely proud!”, says Adam Dahlin, head of publishing at Bokförlaget Forum.

Reading about psychopaths is a bit like observing a car crash: unpleasant, scary and thought-provoking. And yet, one can’t help but watch. For some strange reason, we are fascinated by dreadful events. And we think to ourselves: what luck that it didn’t happen to me! That’s what I believe to be the recipe for success behind Surrounded by Psychopaths,” says Thomas Erikson.
