Press Release: 9 IP Deal Secured

Updated: Aug 10, 2021


June 16, 2021- Arvet Agency AB is pleased to announce that the company has acquired the option for the film/TV and Gaming Rights to nine of Lars Wilderäng’s books, published by Massolit Pocket and Norstedts Publishing AB.

The Swedish author writes in the sci-fi, cyber punk, techno- thriller, counter factual, action, agent and political thriller genre.

Included in the nine book deal, is a sci-fi, speculative fiction, survival genre trilogy, as well as 2 x two sets of books based on a techno- thriller genre with a plot centred around on when Sweden comes under a cyber-attack and invasion by Russia.

Head of Arvet Agency, Grace Maharaj, said that she saw the IPs story franchise of the books immediately as well as the strong potential to develop the stories in the interactive media space.

-The gaming space is an economically thriving global market. It was worth US90 billion in 2020 and is estimated to be over USD 200 billion by 2025. It is the fastest growing sector of the entertainment industry. Technology and content are constantly evolving and IPs from books to film/TV and games are going to merge more and more. It is obvious to me that gaming IP’s are going to be a big part of content development in the streaming space and therefore makes business sense in an acquisition such as this one.





-Lars Wilderäng has the ability to write in a wide range of genres where he weaves themes such as security, finance, technology, sci-fi-survival and prepping genres in the context of our every day life. He dares to boldly explore themes that are no-go zones when asking questions through his characters’ story arcs and the plots. He has a voice and followers. Furthermore, there is a global market for his narratives for content development into Film/TV and Gaming platforms.

Lars Wilderäng previously worked in IT, but now dedicates his time solely to his writing. His great interest in politics and societal issues shines through his successful books. Wilderäng has sold more than 570 000 books in Sweden and is translated into several languages. Lars Wilderäng about his collaboration with Arvet Agency:

-It will be very exciting to get the chance to see my books made into film, television series and games. I especially look forward to seeing the adaptations of my two most recent novels, Fallet (The Drop) and Redovisningsbyrån Marviken (Marviken Accounting Department). A book like Redovisningsbyrån Marviken I’ve never seen done and by using modern film techniques it would be spectacular.

The adaptations will be written in the English language. It is a first of its kind with the inclusion of gaming rights from a literary work. The deal was negotiated by Catherine Mörk of Norstedts Publishing and Jens Göthberg of Desert Business AB for Arvet Agency.
