Review

‘A comic delight of love, luck and mathematics’ Daily Express

‘As unlikely and funny as Jonas Jonasson's 2012 debut bestseller, “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared”’ Observer

‘Excellent. A drily satirical tour of the world [taking in] Swedish liberals, Colonel Gaddafi and of course, apartheid and the South African Prime Minister B J Vorster’ The Times

‘’Feel-good’ set to stun level’ Guardian

‘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

Product Description

SUNDAY TIMES NO 1 FICTION BESTSELLER

FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE HUNDRED-YEAR-OLD MAN WHO CLIMBED OUT OF THE WINDOW AND DISAPPEARED

Just because the world ignores you, doesn’t mean you can’t save it . . .

Nombeko Mayeki was never meant to be a hero. Born in a Soweto shack, she seemed destined for a short, hard life. But now she is on the run from the world ‘s most ruthless secret service, with three Chinese sisters, twins who are officially one person and an elderly potato farmer. Oh, and the fate of the King of Sweden - and the world - rests on her shoulders.

As uproariously funny as Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling debut, this is an entrancing tale of luck, love and international relations.

‘A comic delight of love, luck and mathematics’ Daily Express

‘It’s “feel-good” set to stun levelGuardian

‘As unlikely and funny as The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared Observer
