PARIS (AFP) - The French edition of the seventh and final volume in the Harry Potter saga sold 1.15 million copies -- or half the copies printed -- in 48 hours, publishers Gallimard said on Tuesday.

The 2.3 million copies printed of "Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows" -- titled "Harry Potter et les Reliques de la Mort" -- hit the bookshelves on Friday, more than three months after the boy wizard's fate was unveiled in the English-language edition.

J.K. Rowling's finale, released July 21, broke records, selling more than 11.35 million copies worldwide in just a day, including 2.65 million in Britain.

In France, the sixth volume in the series sold 800,000 copies in the first 24 hours in October 2005.
