A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
(A Richard and Judy Book Club Choice)
Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks that he is surrounded by idiots – joggers, neighbours who can’t reverse a trailer properly, and shop assistants who speak in code.
But isn’t it rare these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity or belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a life-long dedication to making it just so?
In the end you will see that there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible….
