A quirky funny little tale about God, generosity and Santa Claus plus a whole bunch of crooks and thugs doing each other harm with brains that make Whinny the Po into an Einstein. Read as audio book and mostly an enjoyable performance. I like reading about other countries and their culture. Recommend for a less than serious reading encounter.
From Goodreads – A GANGSTER, A VICAR AND A RECEPTIONIST WALK INTO A BAR . . .
Hitman Anders is fresh out of prison and trying to keep his head down when he meets a female Protestant vicar (who happens to be an atheist), and a receptionist at a 1-star hotel (who happens to be currently homeless). Together they cook up an idea for a very unusual business that’s going to make them all a fortune – but then all of a sudden, and to everyone’s surprise, Anders finds Jesus . . .
Anders’ sudden interest in religion might be good for his soul but it’s not good for business, and the vicar and the receptionist have to find a new plan, quick.
As wildly funny and unexpected as The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared and The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden, this is a madcap, feel-good adventure about belief, the media – and the fact that it’s never too late to start again.
