Freuen Sie sich darauf, was once diesem herrlich verrückten Autor für seine neue Protagonistin eingefallen ist!

Die aberwitzige Geschichte der jungen Afrikanerin Nombeko, die zwar nicht lesen kann, aber ein Rechengenie ist, quick zufällig bei der Konstruktion nuklearer Sprengköpfe mithilft und nebenbei Verhandlungen mit den Mächtigen der Welt führt. Nach einem besonders brisanten Geschäft setzt sie sich nach Schweden ab, wo ihr die große Liebe begegnet. Das bringt nicht nur ihr eigenes Leben, sondern gleich die gesamte Weltpolitik durcheinander. ..

Spitzzüngig und mit viel schwarzem Humor rechnet Jonasson in seinem neuesten Roman mit dem Fundamentalismus in all seinen Erscheinungsformen ab. Eine grandiose Geschichte, die dem »Hundertjährigen« an überbordenden Einfällen, skurrilen Wendungen und unvergesslichem Charme in nichts nachsteht!
