A madcap new novel from the #1 internationally bestselling author Jonas Jonasson, author of The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
A GANGSTER, A VICAR AND A RECEPTIONIST WALK INTO A BAR . . .
Killer-for-hire Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets two unlikely new business partners at a 1-star hotel: one, an atheist former Protestant vicar fired from her church, and the other the hotel’s receptionist, the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire. Together they cook up an idea for an enterprising venture involving Swedish gangsters that is set make them all a fortune—until, all of a sudden and to everyone’s surprise, Anders finds Jesus.
Anders’ sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul, but it’s not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.
As wildly funny and unexpected as Jonasson’s previous bestselling novels, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is a zany, feel-good adventure story, tenderly and hilariously exploring belief, redemption, and the fact that it’s never too late to start again.
