More reviews:

‘This Swedish bestseller has all the sordid ingredients of your typical Scandi-noir but gleefully shaken into comedy…he has enormous fun with the skewed morality of his characters; it’s an exuberant farce about people finding the happy lives they have missed. The subversive charm of it lies in the hints that God, or the Universe or whatever, is smarter and funnier than any of us’
– Kate Saunders, The Times

‘Jonasson matches the irreverence of his debut The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared (2009)…It’s a thrilling ride’
– Radhika Seth, Financial Times
