Author: Jonas Jonasson

Publisher: Harper Collins Books

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

Summary: Just because the world ignores you, doesn’t mean you can’t save it. Nombeko Mayeki is on the run from the world’s most ruthless secret service – with three Chinese sisters, twins who are officially one person and an elderly potato farmer. Oh, and the fate of the King of Sweden – and the world – rests on her shoulders. Born in a Soweto shack in 1961, Nombeko is destined for a short, hard life. When she is run over by a drunken engineer, her luck changes. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she is sent to work for the driver – the brandy-soaked head of a project vital to South Africa’s security. Nombeko may be good at cleaning, but she’s amazing at numbers. The drunken engineer isn’t – and has made a big mistake. And only Nombeko knows about it…

This book was very witty and clever. It made me chuckle at times and it felt like an okay read. However, it wasn’t like other books that I personally like which is why it got 2 stars. I won this book on a Goodreads giveaway a few months back and considering it was free, it was worth entering. But, I wouldn’t spend money to read it personally…
