Sweden's Forrest Gump

Posted at 9:33AM Sunday 06 Jul 2014

The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared, by author Jonas Jonasson, sold six million copies and has been translated into 38 languages since it was originally published in his native Sweden in 2009.

Now it's hoped the story will find new fans after being made into one of Scandinavia's biggest-budget films.
