Mladen Mihalev aka Madzho, one of the most prominent underworld figures in Bulgaria, is ready to be interrogated over the murder of writer Georgi Stoev, author of novels about the Bulgarian mafia.

Sofia Prosecutor Nikolay Kokinov confirmed Mihalev expressed readiness to testify over the case but refused to tell when the interrogation will take place.

Authorities said that more underworld figures who are characters in Stoev's books would be interrogated over the murder that shocked the country.

Stoev was shot in the head in downtown Sofia on Monday and died later in a hospital.

The writer has repeatedly declared he was once part of crime rings and wanted to throw light on events from the lives of the allegedly most powerful criminals in the country, claiming also the events in his novels are true facts.

Stoev was the author of the books "BG Godfather (The True Story of Madzho)", "BG Godfather-2: the Marguin, Boyko and the others", "BG Godfather-3: Lyuben Gotsev - the Real Godfather."
