Read the New York Times bestseller that has taken the world by storm!

Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the type of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught out of doors his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But should Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face always?

Behind the cranky exterior there’s a story and a sadness. So when one November morning a chatty young couple with two chatty young daughters move in next door and by accident flatten Ove’s mailbox, it’s the lead-in to a comical and heartwarming tale of unkempt cats, unexpected friendship, and the ancient art of backing up a U-Haul. All of that allows you to change one cranky old man and a local residents’ association to their very foundations.

A feel-good story in the spirit of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry and Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand, Fredrik Backman’s novel about the angry old man next door is a thoughtful exploration of the profound have an effect on one life has on countless others. “If there used to be an award for ‘Most Charming Book of the Year,’ this first novel by a Swedish blogger-turned-overnight-sensation would win hands down” (Booklist, starred review).
