A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman
A Man Called Ove (Swedish: En man som heter Ove, 2012) (Kindle Edition) is a novel by Fredrik Backman, a Swedish columnist, blogger and writer that was published in English in 2013.
Meet Ove. He’s a curmudgeon—the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him “the bitter neighbor from hell.” But must Ove be bitter just because he doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time?
