About the Book

What's next for Allan Karlsson? Turns out this centenarian has a few more adventures in store . . .

It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harboring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un. Yikes!

Soon Allan and Julius are at the center of a complex diplomatic crisis involving world figures from the Swedish foreign minister to Angela Merkel and President Trump. Needless to say, things are about to get very, very complicated.

Another hilarious, witty, and entertaining novel from bestselling author Jonas Jonasson that will have readers howling out-loud at the escapades and misfortunes of its beloved hundred-year-old hero Allan Karlsson and his irresistible sidekick Julius.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“[A] silly and wonderful novel. [The scenes] will just keep readers amused almost non-stop, and that’s a feat few writers achieve. A great cure for the blues, especially for anyone who might feel bad about growing older.” - <em>Kirkus Reviews</em> (starred review)

“Imaginative, laugh-out-loud . . . a brilliant satire on the foibles of mankind.” - <em>The Telegraph</em>

“Eccentric, unusual and far-fetched in the best possible way.” - <em>The Bookseller</em>

“[A] witty caper. ★★★1/2” - <em>People</em>
