79-year-old Martha Anderson dreams of escaping her care home and robbing a bank. She has no intention of spending the rest of her days in an armchair and is determined to fund her way to a much more exciting life-style. Along with her four oldest friends - otherwise known as the League of Pensioners - Martha decides to rebel against all of the rules imposed upon them. Together, they cause an uproar with their antics: protesting against early bedtimes and plastic meals. As the elderly friends become more daring, their activities escalate and they come up with a cunning plan to break out of the care home and land themselves in a far more attractive Stockholm establishment. With the aid of their Zimmer frames, they resolve to stand up for old aged pensioners everywhere - Robin Hood style. And that's when the adventure really takes off ...Translated by Rod Bradbury.

From the Back Cover:

“Funny, smart and heartwarming.”—Canadian Family on the #1 bestseller The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules The heroes of the #1 national bestseller are back and breaking more 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?

“Prepare to laugh out loud as the misbehaving and occasionally forgetful Martha and her long-suffering cronies surmount a series of priceless pitfalls and fearsome foes, and make themselves as unforgettable in Vegas as they were in Stockholm.”—Lancashire Evening Post
