German term or phrase: Geisterfahrer
Jeg vet hva det betyr; en som kjører mot kjøreretningen; men har vi et eget navn på disse på norsk?
Uttrykket det forekommer i er "Der Geisterfahrer des Völkerrechts" -- noen som subsidiært har et forslag til alternativ metafor?

Norwegian translation:Kjerringa mot strømmen
Explanation:
er jo det mest opplagte, men...
Andre ting som går mot strømmen: gytelaks, bidevindsseilere, originaler, individualister, kverulanter, stabeiser, rabulister, støttropper, avantgarde, banebrytere, isbrytere m.m.

Står jammen litt av hvert i den synonymordboka...

Jeg brukte bakstrevere; ordet skulle ikke ha noen positive konnotasjoner. Men takk for hjelpen!
