1Q84 different endings in Russian and English

My wife read 1Q84 a couple of years ago in Russian. I read the American edition this summer. We began discussing and discovered that the two editions had two
very different endings and differing events and characters leading up to those endings.
This is not due to translations: the two endings are radically different.
What about your mother tongue's edition?
I do not share the endings here so as not to spoil your reading Murakami enjoyment.

Hm, this question is a little bit difficult to answer if you don't want to give the ending.

You could use the spoiler function.
Spoiler:
with the tags [spoiler] and [/spoiler] you can hide text

In Japan the books were released as three separate volumes. Is it possible that they did the same in Russia, and your wife only read the first part? Each part is about as long as a typical novel.

And yes, please do tell us using the spoiler tag what the other ending is!
