Celebrating… Cormoran Strike

20 June 2016


Career of Evil was published in paperback on 21st April this year, completing the paperback set of the three existing Cormoran Strike novels by Robert Galbraith, published by Little, Brown. The three books are currently published in 39 languages around the world.

In September 2015, the BBC presented new details about their new series The Cormoran Strike Mysteries, which production began on at the end of last year by Brontë Film and Television, the producers of The Casual Vacancy. An official release from the BBC names Sarah Phelps, who adapted Rowling’s A Casual Vacancy, as the writer for the first Galbraith book, The Cuckoo’s Calling, with British TV writer Ben Richards taking The Silkworm. They also announced that Julian Farino would direct the series. Farino has worked extensively with HBO on series such as Baller and Entourage.

“Steeped in the atmosphere of contemporary London, Cormoran Strike’s city is far from the bright lights and frenetic bustle, immersed instead in its darker, murkier side. War veteran turned private detective, Strike investigates shocking crimes together with his female assistant Robin, whose forensic mind and fierce determination he cannot ignore. The murders take them from the hushed streets of Mayfair to the literary haunts of Fitzrovia, exposing the seedy reality lurking beneath seemingly innocent societies. With each crime, they discover a little more about each other and both learn that appearances can be deceptive.” (BBC press release)
