Five lucky subscribers to our weekly newsletter have won a copy of the book inspiring Roman Polanski's film "The Ghost Writer," which just premiered at this year's Berlinale.

The kind people at Random House are sending us copies of "The Ghost" by Robert Harris to coincide with the Berlin International Film Festival this week. The Polanski thriller based on the novel is currently in the hunt to take home the Berlinale's top prize the Golden Bear.

But these five readers were quick enough to respond on Friday to The Local's newsletter to garner their own prize:

B. Bero

N. VanEerde

C. Sommer

K. Morrow

Y. Tan

Thanks to everyone else for their interest. We'll get the books sent out soon.
