The bestselling novel from the author of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO START AGAIN. AND AGAIN.

It’s always awkward when five thousand kronor goes missing. When it happens at a certain grotty hotel in south Stockholm, it’s particularly awkward because the money belongs to the hitman currently staying in room seven. Per Persson, the hotel receptionist, just wants to mind his own business, and preferably not get murdered. Johanna Kjellander, temporarily resident in room eight, is a priest without a vocation, and, as of last week, without a parish. But right now she has two things at her disposal: an envelope containing five thousand kronor, and an excellent idea . . .

Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and many crates of Moldovan red wine, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonasson’s multimillion-copy bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

‘Jonasson matches the irreverence of his debut The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared ... It’s a thrilling ride’ Financial Times

‘Should carry a health warning for spouses or partners easily irritated by the sounds of helpless chortling’ Irish Times (on The Hundred-Year-Old Man)

‘A mordantly funny and loopily freewheeling novel about ageing disgracefully’ Sunday Times (on The Hundred-Year-Old Man)

‘Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny’ Guardian on The Hundred-Year-Old Man)

‘Pure, ingenious fantasy . . . it’s “feel-good” set to stun level’ Guardian (on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden)

‘A comic delight of love, luck and mathematics’ Daily Express (on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden)

‘Fast-paced, likable, refreshing . . . As unlikely and funny as The Hundred-Year-Old Man’ Observer (on The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden)
