Henrik Nordmark is a bald, middle-aged security guard with few friends and no romantic possibilities. Tired of being the weed sprouting out of the wallflower, generic in his generality, Henrik has an epiphany. He will have one moment of inimitable distinction, even if it kills him.Henrik first sets out to experience the throes of addiction, then to become virtuous, and barring this to be known as a public menace. Inevitably he resolves to find true love and fails miserably. Along his journey, Henrik inadvertently becomes the target of a team of elderly assassins - one blind, one deaf, and the other mute.Henriks counterpart is Roland, a young office worker who, thinking hes won the lottery, dumps his girlfriend and casts aside his friends. He addresses an email to the company where he works: "Dear Heartless Bastards …" Soon Rolands entire world - the fictional one hed built up in his mind - comes crashing down to painful reality.Henriks and Rolands lives intertwine with that of a young couple, the aptly named Bonnie and Clyde, two formerly star-crossed lovers who have grown to loathe each other. Bonnie and Clyde now have homicidal intent in their hearts, but do they have the cleverness or proficiency to pull off their respective crimes?The characters lives all come together in a crescendo in which Henrik realizes his true purpose on earth.
