Ten years of Lene - Playing my game
Here we go with the third part of the milestones in ten years of Lene Marlin musical career!

This time we celebrate ten years from "Playing my game" Norwegian release, the CD with the blue cover featuring a young Lene picture with her bob hairdo.
Still now, "Playing my game" is her most sold record, an international success with about 2 million copies sold, and one of the most sold album ever in Norway, with a record-selling of 50 thousand copies in just three days; it went straight to the top of VG Lista chart and it got the highest mark possible in the review. After just 2 month it already exceeded 100 thousand copies sold, and in the end it sold more than 160 thousand copies (notice that Norway is populated by roughly 4.5 million inhabitants).
In Italy, the album sold about 300 thousand copies, getting 3 platinums and stayed in the charts for an entire year. In France and in UK it sold respectively about 300 thousand and 250 thousand copies, becoming double gold in UK, even though it was released only in March 2000, when Lene already decided to "disappear" from the limelight and to stop promotion activity.
Beside Europe, the album was also released in Asia, where it got a huge success, especially in Japan and Taiwan, where Lene was awarded several times.
