Jonas Jonasson - book author
After a long career as a journalist, media consultant and television producer, Jonas Jonasson decided to start a new life. He wrote a manuscript, he sold all his possessions in Sweden and moved to a small town by Lake Lugano in Switzerland, only a few meters from the Italian border.
The manuscript became a novel. The novel became a phenomenon in Sweden, and now it is about to reach the rest of the world.

Nombeko Mayeki was never meant to be a hero. Born in a Soweto shack, she seemed destined for a short, hard life. But now she 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.
As uproariously funny as Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling debut, this is an entrancing tale of luck, love and international relations.
Hitman Anders, recently out of prison, is doing small jobs for the big gangsters. Then his life takes an unexpected turn when he meets a female Protestant vicar (who also happens to be an atheist), and a homeless receptionist at a former brothel which is now a one-star hotel. The three join forces and concoct an unusual business plan based on Hitman Anders’ skills and his fearsome reputation. The vicar and receptionist will organize jobs for a group of gangsters, and will attract customers using the tabloids’ love of lurid headlines.
The perfect plan—if it weren’t for Hitman Anders’ curiosity about the meaning of it all. In conversations with the vicar, he turns to Jesus and, against all odds, Jesus answers him! The vicar can’t believe what’s happening. When Hitman Anders turns to religion, the lucrative business is in danger, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.
Fast-paced and sparky, the novel follows these bizarre but loveable characters on their quest to create a New Church, with all of Sweden’s gangsters hunting them. Along the way, it explores the consequences of fanaticism, the sensationalist press, the entrepreneurial spirit and straightforward human stupidity—and underlying all of it, the tenuous hope that it’s never too late to start again.
It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harbouring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un …
Soon Allan and Julius are at the centre of a complex diplomatic crisis involving world figures from the Swedish foreign minister to Angela Merkel and President Trump. Things are about to get very complicated …
Découvrez un extrait du nouveau roman de Jonas Jonasson !
Après son vieux qui ne voulait pas fêter son anniversaire, son analphabète qui savait compter, c'est à un malfrat repenti que Jonas Jonasson donne aujourd'hui une seconde chance. Déjanté !
Pálmi Benediktsson frá Húsavík fór í menntaskóla og ætlaði að verða tæknifræðingur eða jafnvel prestur en það átti öðruvísi að fara. Guðinn Bakkus slóst í för með honum og saman gengu þeir svo snúðugt um gleðinnar dyr að afskekktur bekkur í garði í Kaupmannahöfn varð að lokum eina athvarfið. Þetta er saga Íslendings sem sökk til botns í áfengisdrykkju og eiturlyfjaneyslu. Hann gerði þeim mein sem elskuðu hann, braut allar brýr að baki sér og lenti í ótrúlegustu þrengingum, en braust úr viðjum með góðra manna hjálp og hefur eftir það liðsinnt mörgum í svipuðum aðstæðum.
Þetta er mögnuð frásögn manns sem villtist út að ystu landamærum lífsins en rataði aftur til manna, saga niðurlægingar og dimmra örlaga en einnig birtu, vongleði og sigra.
Jónas Jónasson, hinn ástsæli útvarpsmaður færði hér í letur sögu Pálma Benediktssonar, án vorkunnsemi, en af hlýju, nærfærni og skilningi.
Poor Bootle looks everywhere; the garden, the kitchen, even the goldfish bowl. It must be here somewhere.
Wonderful illustrations and a truly imaginative story make this the perfect picture book for cat lovers of all ages.
