''THE PERFECT HOLIDAY READ'' Evening Standard ''A JOY FROM START TO FINISH'' - Gavin Extence, author of THE UNIVERSE VERSUS ALEX WOODS There is something about Ove. At first sight, he is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He thinks himself surrounded by idiots - neighbours who can''t reverse a trailer properly, joggers, shop assistants who talk in code, and the perpetrators of the vicious coup d''etat that ousted him as Chairman of the Residents'' Association. He will persist in making his daily inspection rounds of the local streets. But isn''t it rare, these days, to find such old-fashioned clarity of belief and deed? Such unswerving conviction about what the world should be, and a lifelong dedication to making it just so? In the end, you will see, there is something about Ove that is quite irresistible... The word-of-mouth bestseller causing a sensation across Europe, Fredrik Backman''s heartwarming debut is a funny, moving, uplifting tale of love and community that will leave you with a spring in your step - and less ready to judge on first impressions a man you might one day wish to have as your dearest friend.
