Gordon Shirreffs

Here's the Swedish cover for Gordon D. Shirreffs's Ride a Lone Trail, as Sveket (I don't know what the Swedish word means, probably something like "Revenge"). Shirreffs was a mean, hardboiled writer with lots of guts - it's just too bad he was bit of a racist towards Indians. His books about Lee Kershaw are quite good private eye novels set in the Wild West.

In one of the Finnish translations, his name was spelled Sherriffs on the cover!
