And then he meets a receptionist at a 1-star hotel and a female Protestant vicar who happens to be an atheist.

I am giving this book 4 stars because I really needed a hilarious read to save me from a potential reading slump! Among the early signs was Per describing Johanna as the strangest woman he’d ever met: a way of saying to the reader, “No, it’s not just you”.

Allan Karlsson’s unworldliness meant he could get away with sometimes doing the wrong thing and still be likeable. Overall: diverting enough if you want a well-written farce to dip in and out of and don’t mind the lack of a strong linear plot. I was expecting a farce and so didn't have any issues with the ludicrousness of events, but I can imagine some readers may find the continued and escalating daftness annoying. Since I read The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared I have been a fan of Jonas Jonasson.

Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All by Jonas Jonasson is a hilarious well written book about three extremely different characters coming together in an extraordinary scheme. It was one of my book club choices back in Spain and I enjoyed it more than everyone else who just thought it was odd. I don’t think I couldn't make sense of her just because she’s so far from the modern CofE type, like the lead character in Rev (who’s also similar to a couple of friends of friends who had thought of becoming clergy, though they also had a quietly donnish side).This episode is at least mitigated by some entertaining supporting characters who are themselves no saints. Make sure to try his other book The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared though!
