Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl has finally been levered from the top of the chart – by red hot sales (sorry!) of Dan Brown’s keenly awaited Inferno. But what else is happening in the Irish charts this week? With 10 Irish authors in the Top 20, The Great Gatsby Film Edition (Picador) has gone in at No.16, and a new entry too for Martina Cole’s The Life at No. 6.

Here are the Top 20 bestsellers
