Overview

#1 International Bestseller

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel meets The Italian Job in internationally-bestselling author Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg s witty and insightful comedy of errors about a group of delinquent seniors whose desire for a better quality of life leads them to rob and ransom priceless artwork.

Martha Andersson may be seventy-nine-years-old and live in a retirement home, but that doesn t mean she s ready to stop enjoying life. So when the new management of Diamond House starts cutting corners to save money, Martha and her four closest friends Brains, The Rake, Christina and Anna-Gretta (a.k.a. The League of Pensioners) won t stand for it. Fed up with early bedtimes and overcooked veggies, this group of feisty seniors sets about to regain their independence, improve their lot, and stand up for seniors everywhere.

Their solution? White collar crime. What begins as a relatively straightforward robbery of a nearby luxury hotel quickly escalates into an unsolvable heist at the National Museum. With police baffled and the Mafia hot on their trail, the League of Pensioners has to stay one walker s length ahead if it s going to succeed .

Told with all the insight and humor of A Man Called Ove or Where d You Go Bernadette?, The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules is a delightful and heartwarming novel that goes to prove the adage that it s not the years in your life that count, it s the life in your years.

In Ingelman-Sundberg's winning seriocomic series debut, 79-year-old Martha Andersson gets fed up with her treatment at the Diamond House retirement home, starting with its bad food and restrictions. Martha decides to do something about her situation by enlisting a number of her geriatric friends, including 79-year-old Oscar "Brains" Krupp, in becoming "the most troublesome oldies in the world." They form the League of Pensioners and embark on a series of escapades that begins with a kitchen raid and grows progressively bolder to include a bank robbery. The OAPs (old age pensioners) prove both adept and inept in ways that are both charming and surprising as they pull off the theft of paintings by Renoir and Monet from Stockholm's National Museum, and then have to deal with the consequences. Readers will pull for the unlikely gang in their efforts to commit the "ultimate crime" toward the end of this appealing crime novel. (July)
