What's next for Allan Karlsson? Turns out this centenarian has a few more adventures in store . . .

It all begins with a hot air balloon trip and three bottles of champagne. Allan and Julius are ready for some spectacular views, but they’re not expecting to land in the sea and be rescued by a North Korean ship, and they could never have imagined that the captain of the ship would be harboring a suitcase full of contraband uranium, on a nuclear weapons mission for Kim Jong-un. Yikes!

Soon Allan and Julius are at the center of a complex diplomatic crisis involving world figures from the Swedish foreign minister to Angela Merkel and President Trump. Needless to say, things are about to get very, very complicated.

Another hilarious, witty, and entertaining novel from bestselling author Jonas Jonasson that will have readers howling out-loud at the escapades and misfortunes of its beloved hundred-year-old hero Allan Karlsson and his irresistible sidekick Julius.

    " I read the book, and wanted to listen to it on audio. I quit a short ways into it. I find the reading to be difficult to understand. Alan's voice (the 100-yr-old man) is too raspy. The Asian voices sound like someone who can't speak English well, which might be realistic, but I want to understand what people are saying. A real shame, as the first book's reader is excellent. I ordered two other audiobooks by Jonasson on the basis of the first 100-yr-old man novel; I am dismayed now to see they are read by the reader of "Further Adventures." "

    " See the movie first; then listen to the book -- there is so much more in the book that it will make the movie (as good as it is) seem like a summary. An epic story that's part Homer, part Mark Twain. Well read by Steven Crossley (coherent, easy to listen to). "
