Publisher's Summary

The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel meets The Italian Job in internationally best-selling author Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg's witty and insightful comedy of errors about a group of delinquent seniors whose desire for a better quality of life leads them to rob and ransom priceless artwork.
Martha Andersson may be 79 years old and live in a retirement home, but that doesn't mean she's ready to stop enjoying life. So when the new management of Diamond House starts cutting corners to save money, Martha and her four closest friends - The Genius, The Rake, Christina, and Anna-Gretta (aka the League of Pensioners) - won't stand for it. Fed up with early bedtimes and overcooked veggies, this group of feisty seniors sets about to regain their independence, improve their lot, and stand up for seniors everywhere.
Their solution? White collar crime. What begins as a relatively straightforward robbery of a nearby luxury hotel quickly escalates into an unsolvable heist at the National Museum. With police baffled and the Mafia hot on their trail, the League of Pensioners has to stay one walker's length ahead if it's going to succeed.
Told with all the insight and humor of A Man Called Ove or Where'd You Go Bernadette?, The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules is a delightful and heartwarming novel that goes to prove the adage that it's not the years in your life that count, it's the life in your years.

Interesting possibilities. Terrible narration.

This may be delightful. The possibilities for the story are great. Halfway through the first download, I just had to quit. The shrillness of the narration was just too much.

OMG I thought it would never end!

The book dragged on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. This story would have done well as a short story, period. There were too many characters and some were completely irrelevant. The narrator’s voice got on my nerves as well. With that said, I don’t think I’ll be listening to any sequels.
