Narrator Patience Tomlinson portrays a cast of charming geriatrics in this somewhat silly but amusing audiobook. Tomlinson portrays Martha Andersson, a 79-year-old Swedish pensioner, as a typically querulous grandmother who discovers her rebellious courage when her retirement home cuts too many corners. Martha's four cronies are clearly distinguished in Tomlinson's reading, including the retired navy man who is still suave with the ladies and the former banker who always knows best. But Tomlinson shines brightest in the narration of the almost slapstick adventures of the old folks as they execute a museum art heist in an effort to be put in prison, which surely will offer more amenities than their parsimonious and dreary senior home.
