Review

A funny and completely implausible farce about a woman, a bomb and a man’s frustrated ambition to overthrow the king of Sweden? The rest of the world will chuckle all the way through it. (Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden)^A funny and improbable tale with characters from South Africa to Sweden demonstrates how even the most seemingly insignificant people can change the fate of the world. (Denver Post on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden)^[A] witty caper. ***1/2 (People on The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared)^The anti Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. . . Jonasson’s lighthearted novel shows the softer side of Sweden. . . . hilarious. (Marie Claire on The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared)^Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny. . . . The plot is pleasingly nimble and the book’s endearing charm offers a happy alternative to the more familiar Nordic noir. (The Guardian on The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared)

From the Back Cover

A gangster, a vicar, and a receptionist walk into a bar . . .

Killer-for-hire Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets two unlikely new business partners at a one-star hotel: one, an atheist former Protestant vicar fired from her church, and the other the hotel’s receptionist, the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire. Together they cook up an idea for an enterprising venture involving Swedish gangsters that is set to make them all a fortune—until, all of a sudden and to everyone’s surprise, Anders finds Jesus. It was the perfect plan—except for Hitman Anders’s curiosity about the meaning of it all. In conversations with the vicar, he turns to Jesus and, against all odds, Jesus answers him! Anders’s sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul, but it’s not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.

As wildly funny and unexpected as Jonasson’s previous bestselling novels, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is a zany, feel-good adventure story that tenderly and hilariously explores belief, redemption, and the fact that it’s never too late to start again.
