A "bit off" as in; obviously Australian, or not an accurate translation from Swedish?

.

I don't think the translator is familiar with English terms. And they did make at least one direct mistake that I caught and metoo confirmed involving a gun. It's readable, but if Marlaine Delargy is doing the UK/US version I'd wait.

Yeah, I think I'll wait.

Is it available in hardback? The Book Depository only have it in paperback.

Edit - I've emailed Quercus and asked them when it will be released.

Yeah, all I could get was paperback. If there is a version with a better translator let me know. I feel I may not have liked it as much as I could have if it had been properly done.

Got a reply from Quercus. They plan to release the book in hardback during 2017. Nothing more specific, sorry.
