 I ordered a copy of Nemesis by Jo Nesbo and when I entered the ISBN into my TBR pile, it came up as House of Pain. Had to do quite a bit of searching in order to find out why. This is another book with at least two titles. So, be advised that Nemesis and House of Pain are the same book! Ah, these are some of the hoops one goes through when reading foreign mysteries.frown

Nothing bugs me more than when publishing houses change the title of books when they are released in a different country. ARGH!! I have gotten the same book with a different title on more than one occasion so am pretty careful now about making sure it's not the same book.

I know, it ticks me off too. That is why I usually send up these little red flags  - to keep others from making the same mistakes as I (and obvioulsy , you too, Cheryl) have made!angry
