Titel: The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
Author: Jonas Jonasson
Choice of: Geke van Dijk
'Last year I read this book with much joy. It’s a comic tale about a young black woman from South Africa, whose entrepreneurial and inventive attitude gets her into one adventure after the other, but who always manages to find a way out.
It’s a light story, but with a critical political overtones. The main characters have an anarchistic attitude to life, and don’t let racist and sexist people and situations they have to deal with, get the best of them.
A great book for your holidays.'
