You all know that you always translate book titles in other countries. And here in Sweden we have some pretty strange ones.

From Russia With Love - Friendly Killer or Kamrat Killer

Dr.No - The Death on Jamaica

For Your Eyes Only - In Deadly Viewpoint

The Spy Who Loved Me - 007, Beloved Spy

Licence Renewed - With Licence To Kill

For Special Services - Special Mission, for 007

Icebreaker - Cold as ice, for 007

Sadly, no more books have been translated into Swedish after Icebreaker...

Interesting translations. They don't quite have the same ring to it, though, do they?
