內容簡介

詼諧幽默小品《百歲老人翹家去》作者,又一部充滿冒險患難精神的異想作品
拯救世界的重責大任,居然落在一個南非小女孩的手上

1961年出生在南非索維托一處小草棚的主角Nombeko,意識到在這個貧窮的鄉下長大,不是被毒品、酒精荼毒,就是面對永無止盡的絕望。然而命運讓她選擇了另一條路,有一天她差點被一位酒駕工程師輾死,大難不死的她,因緣際會獲得幫這位工程師整理家務的工作。這位工程師在南非政府擔任秘密安全的職位,Nombeko意外發掘了最危險的機密─南非正在偷偷製造核彈,而維護世界和平的重擔居然落在她的手中。一段充滿冒險患難的旅程,當然也少不了幾位特別的夥伴:一個逃離越戰的美國大兵、一對堅稱其實只有一人是真實存在雙胞胎兄弟、三個粗心大意的中國女孩及一個專門種植馬鈴薯的農夫,當然少不了故事的主軸瑞典國王。到底Nombeko要怎麼利用她的智慧及勇敢無懼的精神拯救世界,解決核彈難題?

瑞典作家Jonas Jonasson曾擔任新聞記者、媒體顧問及電視製片。暢銷作品《百歲老人翹家去》,幽默風趣及高潮迭起的故事內容,引起全球出版界熱烈迴響,作品也被改編成同名賣座電影。 

As delightfully wry and witty as his bestselling debut, ‘The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared’, this is a tale of how one woman’s attempt to change her future ended up changing everything.

Nombeko Mayeki is on the run from the world’s most ruthless secret service – with three Chinese sisters, twins who are officially one person and an elderly potato farmer. Oh, and the fate of the King of Sweden – and the world – rests on her shoulders.

Born in a Soweto shack in 1961, Nombeko was destined for a short, hard life. When she was run over by a drunken engineer her luck changed. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she was made to work for the engineer – who happened to be in charge of a project vital to South Africa’s security. Nombeko was good at cleaning, but brilliant at understanding numbers. The drunk engineer wasn’t – and made a big mistake. And now only Nombeko knows about it …

As uproariously funny as Jonas Jonasson’s bestselling debut, this is an entrancing tale of luck, love and international relations.
