Review: The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden

Jonas Jonasson's second book has more forward momentum than "The Hundred Year Old Man Who Jumped Out A Window". There are no pauses to tell the hero's life story. Nombeko is beginning her life, not ending it. And she comes to terms with far more setbacks, braves them, albeit in a comic way.

Jonasson may be a frustrated history teacher and inclined to moralising, but one forgives this in a person who amuses so well.
