I Am Behind You (or Himmelstrand) - Australian Edition

I don't think that this has been posted yet, but when I was looking for more information on Himmelstrand and it's upcoming English language release a week ago I found this via our local publisher (Text Publishing), who has handled all of John's previous books. I AM BEHIND YOU is set for an Australian release on the 27th of June 2016. It's funny, I was looking on Amazon UK so I could pre-order a copy but I couldn't find anything, but I did manage to pre-order a copy through Text Publishing's website. Here's hoping they stick to the June release date and don't push it back for a Halloween October release.

I would really like to sink my teeth into this book from next month. :)

In case you haven't already heard what inspired the English title for this novel:
But from the beginning Eli was just Eli. Nothing. Anything. And he is still a mystery to me. John Ajvide Lindqvist

About the caravan in the story:

This is what it's supposed to look like (complete with a Volkswagen):

Yes, it's small. But it is made in an era when cars had engines of 50 horsepowers (or less), and the camping grounds were filled with tents.

I get what you're saying. In any case I can't wait to start reading the book.
Without revealing anything, does the new title somehow explained in the novel?
