The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

by Jonas Jonasson
£8.99   paperback  HarperCollins Publishers (2014)

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson As delightfully wry and witty as his bestselling debut, The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, this is a tale of how one woman’s attempt to change her future ended up changing everything.
 
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 was destined for a short, hard life. When she was run over by a drunken engineer her luck changed. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she was made to work for the engineer – who happened to be in charge of a project vital to South Africa’s security. Nombeko was good at cleaning, but brilliant at understanding numbers. The drunk engineer wasn’t – and made a big mistake. And now 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.
