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.

''Warm, funny, and almost unbearably moving''Daily Mail
''Rescued all those men who constantly mean to read novels but never get round to it''SpectatorBooks of the Year

At first sight, Ove 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 viciouscoup d''etatthat 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...
