My mother-in-law found SOMETHING MISSING listed on the Japanese version of Amazon today. 

Kind of neat.  Huh?

While I'm not certain, I think this is actually an English version of the book, being sold in Japan.  As far as I know, the international rights to the book have been sold to publishers who will translate it into German, Korean, and Russian. 

In Germany, it will be called The Good Thief.  Apparently SOMETHING MISSING doesn't translate well. 

Oddly enough, the book will only be translated into the languages of former enemies of the United States.

I found this amusing, until I realized that that the list of former enemies is quite long.  Even nations like Britain, Mexico, Spain, Italy and France make the list.
