Review: The Little Old Lady Who Struck Lucky Again!

The Little Old Lady Strikes Again

The Little Old Lady Who Struck Lucky Again!
Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg

Martha Andersson and her geriatric pals have taken it upon themselves to help the less fortunate. To do this, they rob and steal from the rich and give to the poor or those in need. When the story opens they group of just robbed a Las Vegas casino and to escape the long arm of the law, they decide to return to their native Sweden.

Unfortunately, on their way back, their ill-gotten gains disappear. To make matters worse, previous loot in Sweden has also disappeared, and they have to figure out how to get it back or come up with a plan to make more money. Further trouble comes when they decide to settle down in a new house. Their new neighbors turn out to be one of Sweden's most dangerous biker gang, with their own plans for taking advantage of the elderly members of the group. But Martha and her pensioners are always up for what life throws their way.

This was a delightful story, both funny and warmhearted, with characters I came to love. And while it wasn't quite as comical as I had anticipated, I thought the author had a real eye for detail, which made this all the more enjoyable.

Thanks to Library Thing for allowing me to read this in exchange for an honest review.
