A Man Called Ove

by Fredrik Backman

Meet the grumpy old man who will make your heart sing.

Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He isn't as young as he used to be. He drives a Saab. He points at people he doesn't like the look of. He is described by those around him as 'the neighbour from hell'. Every morning he makes his inspection rounds of the local streets. He moves bicycles and checks the contents of recycling bins, even though it's been years since he was fired as Chairman of the Residents' Association in a vicious 'coup d' tat'. But behind the surly pedant there is a story, and a sadness. And when on a November morning his new (foreign) neighbours in the terraced house opposite accidentally flatten Ove's letterbox, it sets off a comical and heart-warming tale of unexpected friendship which will change one man - and one community - from their very foundations.

 

An extract of A Man Called Ove is available here.

 

Our Review

5/5 stars

Our book of the month is a huge hit in its author’s homeland, Sweden, and one of our favourite books we’re read this year, or any year. Ove is a grumpy old man who sees the world in black and white, who judges character by the make of car driven, and often gets worked up about things other people do, because, let’s be honest, life is more shades of grey. Ove’s had enough of this world and is methodically trying to leave it, but keeps getting interrupted by an increasing cast of wonderful characters. Ultimately this is a book about love and family, in all its forms. A Man Called Ove is both laugh out loud funny, and beautifully moving, and will give you that ‘happy-sad’ feeling a long time after reading.
