The Little Old Lady Strikes Back

Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg

A delightful and heartwarming novel that proves the
adage that it’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.

This is the fourth book in the beloved and internationally bestselling ’League of Pensioners’ series. Märtha and the League are back once again on a mission to set things right – and possibly commit one or two minor crimes in the name of charity.

When the police start to form suspicions against the group, following a string of blundering thefts in Stockholm, the crafty pensioners flee to the countryside. To their disappointment, they discover that things are no longer the same as they once were outside of the cities. The grocery supermarkets and petrol station have closed for good, the younger generation is moving away and to top it all, their internet connection isn’t working.

It is time to strike back and do something about the situation. The League quickly cook up a plan: ‘Operation Save the Countryside’ – with old tricks and civil disobedience up their sleeves. In addition, ghost tours, cow-bingo and other daring activities are arranged to attract people and jobs to the countryside.

Internationally-bestselling author Catharina Ingelman-Sundberg’s witty and insightful series the ’League of Pensioners’ is a comedy of errors about a group of delinquent seniors whose desire for a better quality of life leads them to rob and ransom. A contemporary and life-affirming entertainment series to be taken very seriously!
