The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden was published in the UK in April and quickly climbed up on the list of the best selling books in the country. The book has received great reviews in some of the country's largest newspapers.

‘One of the word of mouth bestsellers of last year was Jonasson’s uproariously funny “The 100-Year-Old-Man Who Climed Out Of A Window And Disappeared”. Now he’s back in similar vein … A comic delight of love, luck and mathematics’ 
- Caroline Jowett, Daily Express

‘As unlikely and funny as Jonas Jonasson’s 2012 debut bestseller, “The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared” … There is no shortage of fast-paced action … 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.’
- Sophia Martelli, Observer

‘It’s excellent … a drily satirical tour of the world. This tour takes in Swedish liberals, Colonel Gaddafi and of course, apartheid and the South African Prime Minister B J Vorster’
- Catherine Nixey, The Times

‘A funny and completely implausible farce about a woman, a bomb and a man’s frustrated ambition to overthrow the king of Sweden… The rest of the world will chuckle all the way through it.’
- Kirkus Reviews
