Κάτι ανάλογο με το: between Scylla and Charibdis, "on the horns of a dilemma", "between the devil and the deep blue sea", and "between a rock and a hard place".

Κάτι ανάλογο με το: between Scylla and Charibdis, "on the horns of a dilemma", "between the devil and the deep blue sea", and "between a rock and a hard place".
Not quite analogous, since all of the above refer to impossible situations or hard choices, whereas "out of the frying pan etc." refers to a progression from bad to worse.
