Synopsis

Readers around the world have fallen in love with the Senior League, five residents of the Diamond Retirement Home—Martha, The Genius, The Rake, Christina and Anna-Greta—who turn to a life of crime.

New owners have taken over the Diamond, making cost-cutting changes that have transformed the happy home into a dull and dreary place. The residents wonder if they wouldn’t be better off in prison! Martha gets an idea: they shall commit a crime that will ensure conviction—some type of financial crime, a small coup of some sort. They will give whatever they get to the poor and elderly. If Robin Hood could do it, so can they!

What starts as a robbery attempt at a nearby luxury hotel escalates to art theft from a major museum, the culprits armed only with bolt cutters and high-tech walkers. The Mafia gets wind of these robberies, and suddenly the underworld has its eye on both the stolen paintings and the handiwork of The Genius. Soon the Senior League has both the law and the lawless at their heels.

    Book loses momentum with translation

    While the story was interesting, reading the prose was a slog. The book could have benefitted by a good English editor. It lost momentum when the police entered the story. A writer should not spend the readers time on characters she is not going to fully develop. The thoughts of the police did not add anything. They shoukd have remained as distant as the Yugoslav criminal.

    over dramatic

    The escapades were fun to enjoy though at times character flaws were not believable. Nice read on support of what Seniors can do when most think they have grown past their "usefulness ".

    Comedy and suspense!

    The little old lady is a great character, and the plot is so clever that this book was hard to put down! Funny and engaging story from start to finish; I loved it!
