New swedish casino royale edition
A new Swedish version of Casino Royale (1953), the first novel in the Ian Fleming series about agent 007, is published by Kriminalförlaget. The last time CR was released in Swedish was 34 years ago and finally it is being re-released.

"Introducing James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome; chillingly ruthless and very deadly. This, the first of Fleming's tales of agent 007, finds Bond on a mission to neutralise a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called simply 'Le Chiffre' - by ruining him at the baccarat table and forcing his Soviet spymasters to 'retire' him. It seems that lady luck is taken with James - Le Chiffre has hit a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules, and Bond's attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster and an unexpected saviour."

Book details:
Bond girl: Vesper Lynd
Villain: 'Le Chiffre'
Location: Royale les Eaux – French seaside resort, Lisbon, Portugal

(In November 2006 Casino Royale (2006), starring Daniel Craig as James Bond, became the first Bond film to be based on an original Ian Fleming novel since The Living Daylights (1987).)

Editor's note:
The last time a Bond novel came out in Swedish was Diamonds Are Forever in 2001. Kriminalförlaget has also announced they will re-issue a new Swedish edition of Live and Let Die (1954), Fleming's second original James Bond novel.
