Front Cover
HarperCollins Publishers, Aug 9, 2018 - Fiction - 448 pages
The sequel to Jonas Jonasson’s international bestseller The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared

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 harbouring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un ...

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

Praise for The Hundred-Year-Old Man:

‘A mordantly funny and loopily freewheeling debut novel about ageing disgracefully’ Sunday Times

‘Imaginative, laugh-out-loud . . . a brilliant satire on the foibles of mankind’ Daily Telegraph

‘Fast-moving and relentlessly sunny’ Guardian

Another fun read about a 100+ year old man. He gets around and his travels with his companions are amazing. There are many plot threads weaved together and they work well. If you liked the first book you will like this one. Read full review

Allan Karlsson has reached his 101st birthday and is one again tangled up in world events. I liked this one better than the first book in the series -- the plot was tighter and I often laughed out loud. A fun read. Read full review
