Ove is a grumpy old man who has a life behind him and not much ahead of him. His story started with his rude introduction to his new neighbours and ended with me in tears! It is a mix of old memories with new interactions which encourage you to see more to Ove than just the grumpy man next door. If you liked Jonas Jonasson this is definitely one for you. It is emotional, funny and heartwarming. I loved the way Fredrik Backman developed Ove’s character throughout the book. My favourite book of 2014 so far! I can’t recommend it enough.
