Don't kill me on Friday

Ben Schneider is 29 years old and has had enough of life: you get up, work, worry, die. He hates his job; he hates his boss. He has lost contact with his parents and sister, and love and friendship are nothing more than a distant memory. Life has nothing more to offer him. And so he may as well think of a cool exit strategy – and his pothead dealer Tobi seems to have thought of the perfect way out… He finds Ben a hitman and tells him to kill Ben at an unexpected time, in a surprising way. Ben willingly hands over the cash, and states that his only condition is that he wants 50 more days. But what ensues in these 50 days will turn everything upside down... Can the hitman be stopped? Or is it too late? 

  • A young author with a modern sound: melancholic, darkly funny, quirky, memorable, and even beautiful at times
