About this deal

Conniving, imaginative, quick-witted and vindictive, the priest is easily the most fascinating and enjoyable of the trio - with the Hitman a simple foil, and the receptionist an out-of-his-depth sidekick for the bulk of the story - but this is nevertheless an ensemble piece: the very traits that make the priest the stand-out, and most proactive character of the group are also what make her incapable of coping on her own.

Per Persson, grandson of a man who failed to spot that tractors were going to be the end of his lucrative horse breeding business and lost the family fortune, causing his son (Per’s father) to become an alcoholic and subsequently abdicate responsibility for Per when his wife asked for a divorce. Maybe when Anders becomes pastor of his church Jonasson is saying organized religion is run by crooks? In a former brothel turned low-rent hotel, the lives of three unusual strangers--a former female priest, recently fired from her church; the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire working as a receptionist; and Killer-Anders, a murderer newly released from prison--accidently collide with darkly hilarious results.Ultimately, the characters’ journey seemed very Scandinavian, connected to the central Swedish value of lagom (enough; moderation as an approach to all aspects of life). Có lẽ đây là cuốn kết thúc 2019 rồi, 3 ngày tới không muốn mau mải đọc cuốn nào cả, thêm cuốn này là vừa đủ hoàn thành challenge năm nay - cuốn sách số 50 - kết thúc một năm kha khá niềm vui y như cuốn này!

Even so it works on the same principle, a certain kind of "unusual" heroes, and a wildly improbable plot. I think the aim is supposed to be black humour, but black humour only really works if you feel something for its subjects.Allan Karlsson’s unworldliness meant he could get away with sometimes doing the wrong thing and still be likeable.
