Staff Reviews


Ove's life and everything in it is punctual, tidy and in perfect working order. But without his wife he has nothing to live for and decides to fix it with as little as possible. Unfortunately, he keeps getting interrupted by his neighbors and their chaotic, messy lives. A little Scrooge, a little Archie Bunker and a lot of heart. Funny and touching.

“A Man Called Ove by Swedish blogger and columnist Backman is one of those books you read and then want everyone else to read, too. It is also one of those books where you don't dare go into detail about the main character, the setting, or the plot because that would ruin the experience for others. Suffice it to say that the man whose name is Ove is a curmudgeon. He's grumpy. He's cantankerous. And he is a delight! Long may he harrumph!”
