Get carried away by the criminally fun internationally bestselling sensation!
The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules is a quirky, humorous and heart-warming story about growing old disgracefully—and breaking all the rules along the way!
Seventy-nine-year-old Martha Andersson dreams of escaping the dull, drab life of the retirement home. With no intention of spending the rest of her days confined to an armchair, she enlists her four oldest friends—a.k.a. the League of Pensioners—to rebel against the rules imposed upon them. Together, they cause an uproar with their antics: protesting against early bedtimes, tasteless meals, and a host of unfair cost-cutting measures. As the elderly friends become more daring, their activities escalate, and they devise a cunning plan to rob a bank in order to fund their exciting new lives. Determined to stand up for senior citizens everywhere—and not to be slowed down by their walkers—they outrun both the law and the lawless on their way to wealth and infamy.
For fans of The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, this is a charming, funny caper that proves you’re never too old to break the rules!

Martha Andersson and the League of Pensioners have left behind their dreary old-age home in Stockholm and are headed for the bright lights of Las Vegas. This is their chance at a new lease on life, and they plan to make the most of it. Before long they are up to their old tricks, plotting to outwit the security system at one of the city’s biggest casinos. However, they aren’t the only ones planning to steal bucketloads of cash, and soon they find themselves pitted against a gang of dangerous criminals.
Can the group of elderly friends work together to outsmart the younger robbers and get away with their biggest heist yet? Or will this job be a step too far for the League of Pensioners?
