Having left behind their restrictive senior home in Stockholm, the gang is off to make it big in the bright lights and big money of The Strip.

But they aren't the only ones looking to outsmart Vegas security systems. The League finds itself inadvertently mired in a diamond robbery and face to face with a gang of young--but dangerous--criminals. Working together they may have gotten the jewels and cash through airport security, but now that they're back home will they be able to outfox the robbers and keep the Swedish police at bay? Or will this be one heist too many for the League of Pensioners?This clever, witty, and devilishly fun sequel to The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules delights and probes by turns, and reminds us that we're never too old for a little mischief.

Martha Andersson and the League are at it again: Trading their senior home for the bright lights of the Strip, they're ready to take Vegas for all it's worth. A few lucky nights at the casino, some helium balloons, a set of dentures, and an inadvertent diamond robbery later, these five elderly friends have added a nice sum to their philanthropy budget and, satisfied, head home.
Back in Sweden, though, all is not as it should be. Their new neighbors, members of an infamous motorcycle gang, have taken a suspicious interest in the retirees next door and, more concerning still, their Vegas winnings haven't reached the intended elderly beneficiaries. A Robin Hood in an electric wheelchair, Martha won't rest until she's bettered the lives of pensioners across Sweden, but as the League's scheming escalates, she starts to wonder, Will this next heist be one too many?
Perfect for fans of Fredrik Backman, this devilishly fun sequel to The Little Old Lady Who Broke All the Rules reminds us that it's never too late to get in the game.
