Swedish Reading Club: An Elderly Lady Is Up To No Good by Helene Tursten
Maud 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.
We will be meeting at Covenant Living of the Great Lakes, 2510 Lake Michigan Drive NW (between Oakleigh and Fairfield).
The book is available at Schuler’s, 2660 28th Street SE.
You can also buy the book online at Schuler’s or another independent bookstore.
