The book is selling especially well among the large chains, with Berlin’s leading bookseller Dussmann promoting The Lost Symbol in a coveted window facing the famous Friedrichstraße shopping mile.
While the book is not subject to German price maintenance, the widely anticipated price war has so far failed to materialise. It sells between €18,90 (Amazon.de) and €20,90 (Dussmann), with €19,95 the most common price.
In the meantime Brown’s German publisher Lübbe is putting the finishing touches to Das verlorene Symbol which is being translated by a team of six translators. The German translation will hit bookshops on October 14, the opening day of the Frankfurt Book Fair where it will feature strongly on Lübbe’s stand.
