Swedish "Deathly Hallows" Title Supplied by JKR

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The Swedish Rowling Fanclub e-mailed us earlier in the week to let us know that the Deathly Hallows translated title was, according to publisher Tiden Young Books, supplied by J.K. Rowling. Jo's representatives have now confirmed this info to us. Since this is official info, straight from Jo and her publishers, and the title suggests a more concrete explanation of "Deathly Hallows," that title will be placed under a link for the bottom half of this post - those reading this news via RSS feed, or on the text-only page, now is the time to stop if you don't want to be spoiled. As always, our comments areas are spoiler zones. Beware.
The Tiden quote reads:

"Because the title ...is very difficult to translate, especially if you haven't got the manuscript, JK Rowling decided to provide an alternative title to all the foreign publishers for translation. The title was 'HP and the Relics of Death' which is easily translated to 'HP och Dödsrelikerna'."

The Japanese title, first translated to us by former Leaky staffer Erin, has been revealed as "Harry Potter and the Secret Treasure of Death" (or simliar) by Say-Zan-Sha Publishing.

Our reader Frini says that the official title in Brazil is now "Harry Potter e as Relíquias da Morte," which means "Harry Potter and the Relics of Death."
