As unlikely and funny as Jonas Jonasson's 2012 debut bestseller, The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared, his second novel follows a self-taught Soweto shanty-town girl called Nombeko who has the opportunity not just to save the king of Sweden, but also the world when she finds herself confined in a potato truck with the king and the Swedish prime minister in 2007. Unlikely? The probability, calculated by Nombeko, is 1 in 45,766,212,810. With an eccentric cast of characters that includes three Chinese sisters practised in the arts of poisoning dogs, an alcoholic South African nuclear bomb engineer and a borderline psychotic who brings his twin sons up as one child so that the "spare" can eradicate the Swedish royal family, there is no shortage of fast-paced action. The faux-naive style makes light and frothy work of weighty events: take nothing seriously is the refreshing subtext. At the heart of this very likable book is the notion that even someone from the humblest of origins can have a gigantic impact on life.
