How bad do publishers want the next Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?

How bad do publishers want to have the next The Hypnotist: A Novel?

Bad enough that they will create a specially designed box to send an ARC in. That must have cost a lot!

The Hypnotist is about a boy whose entire family is murdered in a Stockholm suburb (so Swedish, check!).  Whoever committed the crimes wanted this boy to die: he’s suffered more than one hundred knife wounds (so violent, check!) and lapsed into a state of shock. Desperate for information, Linna sees only one option: hypnotism. For that he needs one man who has sworn he will never use hypnotism again.

Quick!  Do you think the hypnotist says no?

I've been hypnotized several times.  Totally amazing.
