Set in Derry, Northern Ireland, not long after the end of "The Troubles;" but for Hansen’s characters the war is far from over – not just between Catholic and Protestant; but seemingly between everyone and everyone else.
The plot doesn't so much revolve, as reel drunkenly around a scheme to swap out cheap quality canned goods, Hungarian Semtex, two knuckle-headed would-be IRA revivalists, Polish immigrants, a family for whom “dysfunctional” would be several steps up, street hooligans, striking workers, absinthe, a mysterious and gruesome videotape, and the political, religious, and financial rift between Catholics and Protestants.
Hilarious from start to finish, thanks in great part to Hansen’s mastery of dialect, "Hand in the Till," is an absolute must read.
The main gist of the book concerned the "troubles" in Ireland, when there was great turmoil, bullying and cruelty all in the name of religion - whose religion was better, or as one teenage bully put it, "Coke or Pepsi (Catholic or Protestant)?" Not that any loving or merciful God really cares. It is in one's heart and behavior that counts.
Having an employee scheme to defraud her boss so she could have a little extra money added nothing.
As I said, I read the first four chapters, but could not force myself to read more. Sorry, Gerald Hansen, I'm not a fan.
I have to hand it to Mr. Hansen - he not only topped it -- He "over the topped" it. If I could give this book more than 5 stars, I would. Hand in the Till is even funnier than the first book. I had tears from laughing so hard. I had to read in a different room away from my family, because I was disrupting their evenings. (I did sneak out to share my favourite passages from the book.) I couldn't put it down ... anxious to discover the next unbelievable foray, but afraid of what else this outrageous family could possibly get themselves into, too ... in a sort of voyeuristic kind of way.
If you need a laugh -- get this book. If you need affirmation that your family isn't as bad as some people think -- get this book. If you want to be thoroughly entertained -- get this book.
I, too, am looking forward to what Mr. Hansen comes up with next. Can't wait!

I didn't find it funny - just annoying.
Perhaps, as an American, I just didn't "get" it.
