This week we’ve had our noses buried in The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson…

The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

This story follows Nombeko Mayeki and her efforts to escape from one of the world’s most ruthless secret services with her three companions. The fate of the King of Sweden, and the rest of the world for that matter, is entirely in her hands.

Nombeko was guaranteed to have a hard life. She was born in an impoverished shack in 1961, and at one point was run over by a drunken engineer, who she was forced to work for after the incident.

The engineer is in charge of a project that is crucial to the welfare of South Africa’s security. His clumsiness and lack of sufficient knowledge leads him to making a mistake. Only Nombeko knows about it, but she doesn’t know where it will lead her…

This book mirrors the brillance and wittiness of his first best-selling debut, and is guaranteed to have you in stitches!
