The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden
- By: Jonas Jonasson
- Narrated by: Peter Kenny
- Length: 12 hrs and 6 mins
On 14th June, 2007, the King of Sweden disappears. In 1994 South Africa dismantles six missiles developed during its brief nuclear weapons programme. In 1961 Nombeko Mayeki is born in a Soweto shack. Seemingly destined for a life nasty, brutish and short, her path takes an entirely unpredictable turn. Because really this story is all about the seventh South African missile - the one that was never supposed to have existed. The one that Nombeko knows far too much about.
An Intellectual Laugh-out-loud Read!!
