Book Cover: The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and disappeared.

"The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared is the examination of the epic life of Allan Karlsson, a Swedish man who travels the globe many times over during his eventful lifetime. Allan is a demolitions expert by trade, and his skills at exploding things and people brings him into contact with some of the most famous leaders of his lifetime. From Spain and General Franco, to American presidents such as Truman, Johnson and Nixon, to Soviet leader Stalin, and many, many others -- all of whom seek Allan's knowledge and abilities for their own governments' purposes -- Allan works at the behest of political causes and ruling classes far beyond his own personal, apolitical interests. His sought after desirability only magnifies when at the ripe age of 100 Allan steals a suitcase filled with millions, which leads to the latest and perhaps last adventure in his storied life" (Bookrags.com).
