About the Author

Jonas Jonasson was a journalist for the Expressen newspaper for many years. He became a media consultant and later set up a company producing sports and events for Swedish television, before selling his company and moving abroad to work on his first novel. He is the author of The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, and Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All. He lives on the Swedish island of Gotland in the Baltic Sea.

Rachel Willson-Broyles is a freelance translator based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She received her BA from Gustavus Adolphus College and her PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Her other translations include Malin Persson Giolito's novel Quicksand; Jonas Jonasson's novels The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden and The Accidental Further Adventures of the Hundred-Year-Old Man; and Jonas Hassen Khemiri's novels Montecore and Everything I Don't Remember, as well as Khemiri's stage plays Invasion! and I Call My Brothers.

Reviews

"As much ludicrous fun as the first book but with the additional bonus of being set in today's crazy political world.... Highly recommended."--Express
"Uproarious....Jonasson's clever prose, madcap delights, and satirical political commentary will please fans of the original novel and newcomers alike."--Publishers Weekly
"A welcome visit from an old friend that's filled with laugh out-loud hijinx as well as thought- provoking and timely satire on the current state of the world and the perils of power."--Booklist
"Jonasson creates the near impossible with his astute assessments of today's unstable global political climate and endearingly sweet characters, providing laugh-out-loud moments in a dark time. Reminiscent of Alexander McCall Smith's The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency with a side order of Forrest Gump."--Library Journal (starred review)
