The writer, who went to a literary in Harrogate festival, a city to the North of England, said that the novels written under the name of Robert Galbraith surely exceed in number to the Harry Potter books “I wanted to demonstrate that he could publish a book on the merits that it had” emphasized the author, that already achieved fame with the previous installment of the detective, «The song of the cuckoo», to explain why he decided to publish these novels under a pseudonym.
