£5 stimmt nicht.

The thread title shows this short sentence at location 311-312 of The Book Thief; the "£5" doesn't seem to make sense, and I don't have a hard copy for cross-checking. Here for context is the entire paragraph typed up, viz:
"For Liesel Meminger, there was the imprisoned stiffness of movement, and the staggered onslaught of thoughts. £5 stimmt nicht. This isn't happening. This isn't happening.
And the shaking.
Why do they always shake them?"
Perhaps the "£" sign is a misreprentation, or an encoding error? Am I missing something?

I would guess that it should be "es stimmt nicht" - "it's not true". Looks like an OCR error.

Did you get that book from Amazon or a more "price efficient" provider?

I've heard some low cost ebook sellers may do pretty rough scanning...

I bought it from Amazon.
Excellent value at £2.76.
