Goodreads The Girl who saved the King of Sweden (Probably my best read 2014)

http://The Girl Who Saved the King of SwedenThe Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden by Jonas Jonasson
My rating:
5 of 5 stars

I would rate this as probably the most engaging book I have read this year; once I had started I did not stop until I had finished. Full of fantasy yet quite realistic characters (albeit stereo typical) from the main character, an uneducated girl who started work as a sanitation worker in Soweto and somehow ends up as the assistant for an Afrikaner weapons engineer, including correcting his calculations for producing nuclear missiles, one of which ends up in Sweden. A really enjoyable and fast flowing book.
