Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
A wonderful satire of life in Finland, yet the humor shines through for any reader. The protagonist encounters a host of well-delineated, flawed characters.
Call it a Scandinavian blend of Get Shorty and A Confederacy of Dunces.

If you enjoyed the 100 year old man..........then this is a similar tale but perhaps not quite as entertaining but all the same worth a read
