Also Published As...

After yesterday's post which announced the retitling of Arne Dahl's Misterioso (a title suitable for everywhere else it seems from the covers on his website) as The Blinded Man, I thought I'd have a look at what else has been retitled in the last couple of years or so. Usually the UK title is first with the US title in brackets, but not always.

That was first published in 2006 so missed the cut for this list though of course the new edition is 2011/12?

I may do a whole list and put it as a reference post.
