Criminal Reviews

Agency: Serviceplan


The book publisher PIPER asked a convicted murderer to review the crime novel “Wisting und der Tag der Vermissten”. This written review was published on their website, social media channels and spread through book stores. Within just 7 days after the initiative, the book became a SPIEGEL bestseller – Germanys most popular ranking for books. With Criminal Reviews, PIPER reinvented the way of reviewing books.
Book critics often decide on the success of a book. But are they really the right people to evaluate a book? Criminal Reviews. A crime novel is reviewed by a real criminal.
