Good question. If you get any positive answers sent to you off list, please share.

I have searched from time to time and found no evidence of forthcoming translations of works from the Crisis Trilogy.

A few years ago I did track down rumors of a fourth title from the earlier works, Basic Shareholder, being published in English in the UK in 2010/2012.

There are even listings with ISBNs for it on Amazon UK (2102) and Amazon Canada (2010), the latter listing David Connolly as translator. But I found no evidence that actual copies were ever produced or available anywhere. I believe I may even have contacted the publisher listed on Amazon Canada, Arcadia Books (the UK company, not the US one) but if so, I never heard back.

Subject: [MGSA-L] translating Petros Markaris?

A few of Markaris' earlier novels have been translated into English but none of his Crisis Trilogy, to my knowledge. There are translations into German, French, Italian, Turkish etc.

Does anyone know whether there are translations in progress of the Crisis Trilogy?
