Swedish translation out
The Swedish translation is now out – some days early? – both in paper and e-book. It has been translated by Eiko and Yukiko Duke, who have also done Norwegian Wood, Kafka on the Shore, The Elephant Vanishes, and several other of Murakami's books.
The publishers have decided to retain only part of the original title, and have called it Den färglöse herr Tazaki, which means "The colorless Mister Tazaki".
