A madcap new novel from the one-of-a-kind author of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden.
It's never too late to start again. And again.
It's always awkward when 5,000 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 5,000 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 best seller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.

Zany roller-coaster read!
I'm not sure I'd read it again but it was great fun while it lasted. An amusing story, like reading the script of a Marx Brothers' movie!
The three central characters are all good fun but the Hitman himself was very well portrayed by Peter Kenny.
He was the perfect choice for this book. His brisk, no nonsense reading underlined the comic elements and he never overdid anything simply for comic effect.
There are certainly laugh out loud moments in this story.
An entertaining way of spending a few hours. I'd be happy to listen to other books by the same author and will certainly look out for Peter Kenny as a reader.
An enjoyable adventure
