From the author of the international bestseller The 100-Year-Old-Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared, a brilliant satirical novel set in modern Sweden--a story of idealism and fanaticism, gangsters and entrepreneurs, sensationalism and spirituality, that explores the values that matter in contemporary life.

In a former brothel turned low-rent hotel, the lives of three unusual strangers--a former female priest, recently fired from her church; the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire working as a receptionist; and Killer-Anders, a murderer newly released from prison--accidently collide with darkly hilarious results.

Seeing a lucrative opportunity in Killer-Anders, the unlikely trio form an unusual new business. The Priest and The Receptionist will handle strategy and public relations, and coordinate Killer-Anders "missions." Using the medias obsessive need for sensational, headline-making stories to advertise their talents superb "skill," they quickly build a clientele of rich Swedish gangsters. Suddenly, theyre making an altogether different kind of killing of their own.

But when Killer-Anders begins asking deeper questions about purpose and meaning, his curiosity leads him to an unexpected discovery: he finds Jesus. Desperate to save the money machine theyve built, The Priest and The Receptionist devise an audacious plan utilizing Killer-Anders newfound and decidedly fervent faith.

Mischievous yet big-hearted, filled with Jonas Jonassons trenchant humor and delightful twists, Hitman Anders and the Meaning of It All is a delightful comic adventure that reminds us its never to late to start over--and to discover what truly matters.
