Can the Casting Begin Now?

Namibian-born Zirk van den Berg “scooped a 2014 KykNET Report Book Prize in South Africa last week for the recent Afrikaans translation of his acclaimed debut thriller, Nobody Dies, which was first published in English in New Zealand ten years ago,” reports Craig Sisterson of Crime Watch. “Van den Berg won the film category of the prestigious awards, which offer a total prize money of 500,000 rand in three categories: literary fiction, non-fiction, and book with the most film potential.” Sisterson adds: “Having read the English language version of Nobody Dies, I can heartily agree that it is a book that very well could make for an excellent film, with terrific visuals, action sequences, twisting plot and intriguing hero.”
