The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson

The anti — Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: After the saturation of thrillers by Steig Larsson, Jonasson's lighthearted novel shows the softer side of Sweden. It was published in 2009 in Swedish and has just been translated into English for the first time. Plot notes: A hilarious story about centenarian Allan Karlsson, who skips out of the nursing home minutes before his 100th birthday party to go on one last adventure. Get inspired: Already an international best seller, this playful book will remind you to live life to the fullest.
