Sweet Sweet Revenge Ltd is the latest from Jonas Jonasson, author of The 100 Year Old Man who Climbed out of a Window and Disappeared, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of it All and The Girl who Saved the King of Sweden. Jonasson writes quirky feel good novels that suck you in and his latest is no exception.
As the title suggests this is a story of revenge, Jenny has been swindled out of her inheritance by her husband Victor who has also abandoned his son Kevin in the Kenyan Savannah. Kevin eventually returns to Stockholm where inevitably he meets Jenny and then a trail of events is set inn place to get revenge on Victor. Add in an ex advertising executive who has set up a revenge business and the Masai warrior who adopted Kevin in Kenya and you have a chaotic cast of characters scheming and stumbling through the plot.
If you have read any of Jonasson’s earlier stuff you will love this, if you haven’t you are in for a treat.
