US Spanish Language Landmark

The May 30th finale of La Reina Del Sur, Telemundo’s Spanish-language series based on the novel of the same title by Spanish novelist Arturo Pérez-Reverte achieved the highest ratings for its time slot, regardless of language

The finale also gave a boost to the Spanish-language tie-in, a thriller about a Mexican woman who becomes the head of one of the biggest drug trafficking rings in the south of Spain. It rose to #196 on Amazon sales rankings; the English translation (Plume, 2005), rose as well, but only to #2,461.

In December, Alfaguara released the tie-in edition of the 2002 book.

    At our library, we also saw a big jump in demand for the Spanish edition of the Count of Monte Cristo. Apparently La Reina takes inspiration from that classic.
