It has also placed on the German Original Fiction chart, reached No. 1 on the Audible bestseller list, and No. 6 on the Indie Bestseller list in the US.

The Maid has been translated into 36 languages, and film rights have been optioned by Universal Pictures, with Oscar nominated actress Florence Pugh set to star as Molly the maid on the silver screen.
