The hitman's guide to housecleaning by Hallgrímur Helgason( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With some 66 hits under his belt, Tomislav Boks̆ić, or Toxic, has a flawless record as hitman for the Croatian mafia in New York. That is, until he kills the wrong guy and is forced to flee the States, leaving behind the life he knows and loves. Suddenly, he finds himself on a plane hurtling toward Reykjavik disguised as American televangelist Father Friendly. With no means of escape from this island devoid of gun shops, this country with absolutely no tradition for contract killing, he is forced to come to terms with his bloody past and reevaluate his future, to tragicomic effect. Toxic paints Iceland as an icy netherworld where in spite of peaceful appearances danger lurks--in the guise of terrifying romantic overtures with tough-girl Gunholder, fear of being caught in his blasphemous deception, and the threat of punishment at the hands of Thordur ... whose name seems to be pronounced 'Torture.'"--Page 4 of cover

Au Centre de l'univers, Dieu et quelques assistants triés sur le volet observent et contrôlent les 714 espèces humaines qu'il a engendrées. La vie suit son cours sereinement, jusqu'au jour où le Créateur apprend que les habitants de la planète 607, la Terre, se sont mis à cloner des individus, s'autoproclamant ainsi dieux. Le Tout-Puissant réunit ses plus proches collaborateurs lors d'une réunion de crise, dont la conclusion est sans appel : il faut éliminer ces insolents et former une nouvelle espèce. Mais les anciens Terriens ne l'entendent pas de cette oreille. Le multiréincarné Napoléon Nixon décide de prendre les choses en main et d'aller à la rencontre du diable. Lui seul pourra triompher du Très-Haut ... Hallgrímur Helgason nous a habitués à des personnages détonants. Avec cette comédie au casting de rêve, il frappe très fort et signe, toujours avec la maîtrise et l'humour qui le caractérisent, un roman explosif
