Do you crave to find a new funny novel? Well, this is it! So you've read all the "Girl" series, Dragon Tattoo, ...Played with Fire and Kicked the Hornet's Nest....and you've read other Swedish authors and liked their dark, violent mysteries....and you've heard that Swedes and other Nordic people don't have a finely tuned sense of humor.....Well, that is Wrong! This book proves that a Swedish author not only can make you laugh out loud, but will amaze you with his satire and insight of the deadly world of international politics.
Some of you may be familiar with the German folk character of Til Eulenspiegal, the simple country man who does everything wrong and comes out smelling like roses every time! Well, that archetype is our 100-Year-Old Man, except, one who accidentally throughout his long life has single-handedly brought about all the major world events to be as they are and he still ends up rich, happy and gets the girl.
Think an accidental cartoon Road Runner, always escaping, and having his enemies love him....the ones who survive :>
The glow of this rollicking story will stay with you and you will recommend this to your friends. It will make you wish that you had the courage to live your life exactly as you want and still have it all turn out well! Most of us have to deal with reality by compromising. Not our 100-Year-Old Man!
Place this book on hold now!
