An Elderly Lady is Up To No Good - Book Review

An Elderly Lady is Up To No Good by Helene Tursten 
Publication: January 1, 2013
Pages: 178 pages
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars ☆☆☆☆☆
Sweet Spark: I'm pretty sure enjoying this book as much as I did may put me on some watch list somewhere - but oh, well!

While I will always admit to loving a lil vigilante justice, 88-year-old Maud takes it to the next level. Who could possibly suspect a little old lady in a family apartment in Sweden of murder? Probably no one, but should they?

She merely eliminates a few people who may need killing, to make her life or even someone else's a bit better. And no one believes she could be so vicious, except a couple female detectives who also aren't taken seriously by their experienced male colleagues. Alrighty then - guess she can just get on with it!

This was seriously such a fun read, and I loved the presentation of the short little interludes of Maud just living her best life. I would wholeheartedly recommend this book to those who enjoy a bit of crime stories (that the original author is apparently known for), or unexpected stories with quirky characters.

Thanks so much to one of my book club besties for recommending - I may not have discovered this one on my own, but she knows me and knew I'd love this book. :)
