Review

A mordantly funny and loopily freewheeling debut novel about ageing disgracefully (Sunday Times)

Imaginative, laugh-out-loud . . . a brilliant satire on the foibles of mankind (Telegraph)

Scandi-crime's signature darkness is here dispelled by Allan Karlsson, the eponymous centenarian, who with unlikely sprightliness hops out of the window of his old people's home one afternoon. . . . Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny. . . . Like Allan, the plot is pleasingly nimble and the book's endearing charm offers a happy alternative to the more familiar Nordic noir (Guardian)

The anti Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. . . . Jonasson's lighthearted novel shows the softer side of Sweden. . . . hilarious (Marie Claire)

[A] silly and wonderful novel. [The scenes] will just keep readers amused almost non-stop, and that's a feat few writers achieve. A great cure for the blues, especially for anyone who might feel bad about growing older (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

[A] laugh-out-loud debut. . . . Historical figures like Mao's third wife, Vice President Truman, and Stalin appear, to great comic effect. Other characters-most notably Albert Einstein's hapless half-brother - are cleverly spun into the raucous yarn, and all help drive this gentle lampoon of procedurals and thrillers (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

Eccentric, unusual and far-fetched in the best possible way (Bookseller)

This quirky novel is a sly, satirical look back at international relations in the 20th century through the eyes of an old man who has seen it all (Library Journal)
