Assunto:  A most wanted
 
Mensagem: 

   I queried the WebCorpus   http://www.webcorp.org.uk/wcadvanced.html

And got these hits.

   In fact it is used, though, it seems that not so much as they use 'the most...'

   I can´t explain in details, I am not in that level yet, but I consider the usage as normal.     And I have seem the books translate, for example, "there´s a Marcio waiting out there, sir." into "Há um (certo Márcio) esperando lá fora."  

   Thus, the use of 'a' is 'um certo/a (pessoa)'.

    In short, 'A most wanted...' could means 'the most wanted' or 'a certain wanted'; that is; 'O homem mais procurado' or 'um certo homem (dos) mais procurados'.

    Maybe the two forms have little diference, depending on context, but the title is

right. Okay?

    PP.
