What is the Russian translation for "The Witcher?" (Wiedźmin in Polish)

 

I would like to get the Russian translation of the books, and I hear they are quite popular.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Witcher

One of my language goals is to play the Russian version of the 3rd game when it comes out next year. But before that, i want to read all the books in Russian (only two are available in English).

Thank you,
Kyle

    Leaf,

    The word "witcher" means "dowsing rod" in English; a stick used to find water.
    The word "Witcher" has been used creatively by the author of the game to describe the main character. A literal English translation would be Warlock since a Ведьмак is a male witch, sorcerer, etc.
