About the Book:
Ove (Rolf Lassgård) is the quintessential angry old man next door.
An isolated retiree with strict principles and a short fuse, who spends his days enforcing block association rules that only he cares about, and visiting his wife's grave, Ove has given up on life.
After a boisterous young family moves in next door and accidentally flattens Ove's mailbox, an unlikely friendship forms.

This powerfully tender and honest book had me in tears, more than once!
I found it to be honest and funny, and given the storyline centres around grief, the humour in it is quite a feat.
I had heard a lot of great reviews about this, so I was hoping not to be disappointed, but it really did catch me by surprise just how good it was.
Very refreshing to read something so direct and honest.
Will be reading more from this author.
