Danish Pulp Haul, Part # 3:
Carter Brown in Copenhagen.

Two more Winther editions here, both Carter Browns.

Husker Du Maybelle?
Original title: ‘Remember Maybelle?’

‘80s indie-rock devotees will need no assistance with the translation of this title.

Any takers for the artist’s signature at the bottom-right corner?

Det Evige Lig (‘The Eternal Lie’)
Original title: None But The Lethal Heart

I think the tag-line on this one gets the point across pretty well sans translation.

I can’t find anything online to suggest that either of these cover paintings were used elsewhere to illustrate the books they are attached to here, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they’d been recycled from other English language paperbacks. I wouldn’t completely rule out the possibility of the ‘Det Evige Lig’ illustration being a slightly uncharacteristic Robert McGinnis, but don’t look at me, I’m no expert. As ever, any leads are welcomed in the comments box.

It's awesome that you post about actual old pulp in book form. Keep it up!
