You're never too old to have some fun . . . The little old lady is back! This time, Martha Andersson and her friends - the League of Pensioners - have left behind their dreary care home in Stockholm and are enjoying the bright lights of Las Vegas.
This is their opportunity for a new lease of life and they plan to make the most of it. But before long, they are up to their old tricks and with ingenious tactics, a pair of false teeth and a wheelchair each, they plot to outwit the security system at one of the casinos. As their antics become more and more daring, Martha and her friends head back to Sweden full of ideas for more money making schemes.
However, they aren't the only ones planning on stealing bucket loads of cash and soon 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?

Once again a complete and utterly enjoyable story.
Martha and her friends truely are amazing. I want to be in the League Of Pensioners so I can enjoy life to the full when I'm in my golden years too
I would recommend this book.
Martha, she was the leader.
I enjoy listening while doing housework and gardening.
When Martha thinks about her dead child.
The story is mildly entertaining due to the maturer generation getting one (or several) over the young but very fanciful and not believable when all but the main characters are portrayed as simpletons and idiots.
Unfortunately it also felt as if it had been written for a child with the dialogue and text appearing very basic.
I ploughed through to the end because I never like leaving a book unfinished.
This is not a patch on "The Hundred year Old Man..." Or "The Girl Who Saved The King Of England".
