The Girl who Saved the King of Sweden

Nombeko Mayeki is on the run from the world's most ruthless secret service. Oh, and the fate of the King of Sweden - and the world - rests on her shoulders. Born in a Soweto shack in 1961, Nombeko is destined for a short, hard life. When she is run over by a drunken engineer her luck changes. Alive, but blamed for the accident, she is sent to work for the driver - the brandy-soaked head of a project vital to South Africa's security. Nombeko is amazing with numbers; the drunken engineer isn't - and has made a big mistake. And only Nombeko knows about it...
