Description

Initially unnoticed by them, Hitman Anders embarks on an existential crisis that plays out in early morning drinking and unreasonable violence towards inanimate objects. He is the author of The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared , The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden , and Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All .

If that sounds odd then that's because the book is odd, wonderfully so with quirky characters and a plot that despite its absurdities carries the reader from page to page, a smile never far from his/her face. The three join forces and concoct an unusual business plan based on Hitman Anders’ skills and his fearsome reputation. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Jonasson’s worlds may not contain elves, but they are still fantastical and require some suspension of disbelief; Johanna required too much and was more plot device than person. Now he is fresh out of prison yet again, he decides to stay away from the hard stuff so he won't end up right back inside.

Incorrectly billed as a comedy by a desperate PR department, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is a dreary crime caper that thinks it’s clever by making the highly original observations that, 1) Christianity is a bit of a silly religion and 2) tabloid newspapers are trash. So after one pleasant surprise followed low expectations, I anticipated that I’d like book number three just as much. However, towards the end of the story, I found it a little difficult to follow all the characters as there were too many gangsters.

This was a really fun, funny, fast read -- even though it was nearly 400 pages, and whenever I tried to describe what I was reading, it came out sounding super dark and not funny at all. Perhaps she, sometimes reminiscent of pre-Counter-Reformation indulgence-sellers, or fraudulent televangelists, is meant to symbolise negative aspects of the church in a country where people still pay taxes to it, and where freedom of religion was made legal much later than in Britain. Kupiłam tę książkę lata temu na fali zachwytu „Stulatkiem, który wyskoczył przez okno i zniknął”, ale nie ma ona do tamtej porównania. He became a media consultant and later on set up a company producing sports and events for Swedish television.

If you get the chance, even if you get a copy from the library, I do recommend The 100 Year Old Man. In my defense, I got this for Christmas from my aunt who regularly gets me bestsellers thinking she can't go wrong there. But these are people who don’t feel they have many positive options for pulling themselves out of the mire.It has some very funny moments and how it plays with significant events of 20th century history is great.
