The Hitman's Guide to Housecleaning - Hallgrimur Helgason That's 3 stars for the story/writing and 1 star simply for making me laugh. Toxic, Croatian by birth and a killer by profession, is forced to leave the USA when a hit goes wrong. He inadvertently ends up in Iceland and the book follows his new life keeping the LPP (lowest possible profile) and his reflections on his old life. Enjoyable, witty and full of great quotes.

Notable: I think this is the only book I've read where the Eurovision Song Contest features.
