Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is the latest novel from talented Swedish author Jonas Jonasson, whose work I’m a big fan of. This is his third novel and it continues in the same vein as the previous two – with a tall tale, chock full of unlikely coincidences and surprising outcomes. Jonasson relies heavily on satire once again – this time, somehow, managing to poke fun at both organized crime and organized religion. It’s a relatively fun and lightweight read which is a nice change from some of the heavier books I’ve been tackling lately. It’s no surprise he’s sold over 14 million books, and that is very impressive when you consider Jonasson’s first novel was only just published in 2010.
