Well, I've read Black Dahlia in Finnish and some of L.A. Confidential and one short story in English. I think the translation was OK, considering. I've heard the man (Juha Ahokas) has been getting better as the series goes on. He's a good translator, who has also done Edward Bunker in Finnish. His Ellroy is just as edgy as Ellroy is in English.
