Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All by Jonas Jonasson (May 2016)

It's never too late to start again. And again.

It's always awkward when five thousand krononr goes missing.  When it happens at a certain grotty hotel in south Stockholm, it's particularly awkward because the money belongs to the hitman currently staying in room seven.  Per Persson, the hotel receptionist, just wants to mind his own business, and preferably not get murdered.  Johanna Kjellander, temporarily resident in room eight, is a priest without a vocation, and, as of last week, without a parish.  But right now she has two things at her disposal: an envelope containing five fhousand kronor, and an excellent idea...

Featuring one violent killer, two shrewd business brains and many crates of Moldovan red wine.  Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is an outrageously zany story with as many laughs as Jonasson's multimillion-copy bestseller The Hundred-Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared.
