Summary
In a former brothel turned low-rent hotel, the lives of three unusual strangers?a former female priest, recently fired from her church; the ruined grandson of an ex-millionaire working as a receptionist; and Killer-Anders, a murderer newly released from prison?accidentally collide with darkly hilarious results. Seeing a lucrative opportunity in Killer-Anders, the unlikely trio form an unusual new business. The Priest and The Receptionist will handle strategy and public relations, and coordinate Killer-Anders? ?missions.? Using the media?s obsessive need for sensational, headline-making stories to advertise their talent?s superb ?skill,? they quickly build a clientele of rich Swedish gangsters. Suddenly, they?re making an altogether different kind of killing of their own. But when Killer-Anders begins asking deeper questions about purpose and meaning, his curiosity leads him to an unexpected discovery: he finds Jesus. Desperate to save the money machine they?ve built, The Priest and The Receptionist devise an audacious plan utilizing Killer-Anders? newfound and decidedly fervent faith
