HARPER Lee’s new block­buster has be­come the fastest­selling adult novel of the past five years in Aus­tralia, beat­ing works by JK Rowl­ing, EL James and Dan Brown.

Dy­mocks re­ports record sales for Go Set a Watch­man at its 65 stores, with pre-or­ders and two-day sales close to 4000 copies, more than twice as many as Brown’s 2013 thriller Inferno.

Dy­mocks spokes­woman So­phie Higgins said Lee’s lon­gawaited fol­low-up to To Kill A Mock­ing­bird smashed the 2012 record set by JK Rowl­ing’s The Ca­sual Va­cancy, the Harry Pot­ter au­thor’s first adult novel.
