Maude is an irascible 88-year-old Swedish woman with no
family, no friends, and . . . no qualms about a little
murder. This funny, irreverent story collection by Helene
Tursten, author of the Irene Huss investigations, features
two-never-before translated stories that will keep you
laughing all the way to the retirement home.
Ever since her darling father's untimely death when she was
only eighteen, Maud has lived in the family's spacious
apartment in downtown Gothenburg rent-free, thanks to a
minor clause in a hastily negotiated contract. That was how
Maud learned that good things can come from tragedy. Now in
her late eighties, Maud contents herself with traveling the
world and surfing the net from the comfort of her father's
ancient armchair. It's a solitary existence, but she likes
it that way.
Over the course of her adventures--or misadventures---this
little, bold lady will handle a crisis with a local
celebrity who has her eyes on Maud's apartment, foil the
engagement of her long-ago lover, and dispose of some pesky
neighbors. But when the local authorities are called to
investigate a murder in her apartment complex, will Maud be
able to avoid suspicion, or will Detective Inspector Irene
Huss see through her charade?
