Book: Jonas Jonasson «The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden»

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

Nombeko Mayeki 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. Born in a Soweto shack in 1961, Nombeko is destined for a short, hard life. When she is run over by a drunken engineer, her luck changes. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she is sent to work for the driver - the brandy-soaked head of a project vital to South Africa's security. Nombeko may be good at cleaning, but she's amazing with numbers. The drunken engineer isn't - and has made a big mistake. And only Nombeko knows about it... As uproariously funny as Jonas Jonasson's bestselling debut, this is an entrancing tale of luck, love and international relations.
