"The hundred-year-old man who climbed out of the window and disappeared" by Jonas Jonasson

This book was recommended to me by an assistant in a bookstore ("Pocket Shop") at the central train station in Stockholm. I asked for suggestions of books by Swedish authors (translated into English). Among the many Swedish crime writers that were suggested to me, this book by Jonas Jonasson caught my attention. This book is a humourous novel about a 100 year old man who decides (one hour before his birthday party) to go on an adventure, so he climbs out the window of his retirement village and sets off in his slippers...

I just started this book yesterday, so I will add more to the review when I finish it.

Started reading: 6th July 2013.
