English term or phrase: the door behind me
Raven abriu e fechar a porta do quarto do seu cliente e, em seguida, diz:

"When I closed the door behind me, the noise of the club dropped in volume, but the hypnotic pulse of the bass still vibrated through the walls."

Minha dúvida é se devo traduzir o "behind me". Não me parece fazer sentido traduzi-lo como "atrás de mim", pois parece ser algo óbvio! É evidente que ela não fecharia a porta da frente e sim a detrás de si. O que os colegas sugerem neste caso? Ignorar a frase e traduzir apenas como "a porta"?
