FOREIGN EDITIONS
 
Killer Hair, the first mystery in my Crime of Fashion series, is now available in several foreign language editions, with more to come. (Readers of these languages are welcome to tell me what they think of the translations.)

ITALY

 

Killer Hair was published in Italy by Baldini Castoldi Dalai of Milano. I was surprised (and pleased) to discover the Italian translation for "killer hair" seems to be -- "killer hair." And for Italy, the blonde on the cover of the US editions turns into a brunette. 

 

From the cover of the Italian edition:

  

Lacey Smithsonian guardo la sfortunata ragazza e penso: Oh mio Dio, e la pettinatura peggiore che abbia mai visto. E poi dicono che non si muore per un brutto taglio di capelli! Non appena quel pensiero le attraverso la mente, aggiunse: Sei proprio una stronza, Lacey. Ma non poteva farci niente. Era davvero un'orribile pettinatura.

 

ATTENZIONE: LA MODA PUO NUOCERE GRAVEMENTE ALL SALUTE

 

 

RUSSIA

 

The Russian edition of Killer Hair has eye-popping psychedelic cover art. Look for the scissors clipping that cosmic curl! The title translates as "killer haircut."

 

The description from the Russian online bookseller:

 

Vyrazhenie "za takuyu prichesku ubit' mozhno" tainstvennyj prestupnik voplotil v zhizn' samym prichudlivym sposobom! I puskaj politsejskie schitayut, chto znamenitaya stilistka, virtuozno orudovavshaya nozhnitsami, pokonchila s soboj. Lejsi Smitsonian, veduschaya skandal'noj kolonki o bezvkusno odetykh i plokho prichesannykh bogatykh i znamenitykh zhenschinakh, znaet luchshe - stilistku ubili. Za chto? Najti otvet na etot vopros dolzhka sama Lejsi. I dejstvovat' nado bystro - poka man'yak ne uspel sdelat' ee sleduyuschej zhertvoj.

 

 

POLAND

 

The Polish edition of Killer Hair has an elegant silhouette look to the cover art, and "killer hair" translates to "killer cut."  From the Polish online bookseller: 

 

Waszyngton - ojczyzna damskiej fryzury a la helm i meskiej kongresowej "pozyczki", wylegarnia modowych faux pas. Najwiecej wie o nich Lacey, autorka gazetowej rubryki Zbrodnie w modzie. Zawodowo pietnuje odziezowe wpadki i udziela porad ofiarom coraz to dziwniejszych mód. Mloda fryzjerka Angie zaslynela jako geniusz nozyczek i mistrzyni zmiany wizerunku. Pewnego dnia znaleziona ja martwa, z obcietymi wlosami i brzytwa w dloni. Policja uznala, ze dziewczyna popelnila samobójstwo. Jednak Lacey, która dobrze znala fryzjerke, nie moze w to uwierzyc. Podejrzewa najslynniejsza klientke Angie, pracownice Kongresu prowadzaca erotyczna strone internetowa? Fascynujace sledztwo, odrobina pikanterii i romansu, a do tego plotki z zycia elit amerykanskiej stolicy i garsc modowych wskazówek Lacey, która o ciuchach i fryzurach wie wszystko.
