From the author of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

'Feel-good set to stun level' - The Guardian

Just because the world ignores you, doesn't mean you can't save it . . .<,p>

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.

“Laugh-out-loud adventure.”

I honestly cannot describe how eager I was to get my paws on a copy of this book. Jonasson’s ‘The Hundred Year-Old Man…’ was my favourite book of 2013, one I recommended to probably hundreds of customers. Several of... More
