A Man Called Ove

A Man Called Ove


In this moving comic crowd-pleaser based on Fredrik Backman’s eponymous bestselling novel, Ove is a grumpy widower who patrols his block every morning like clockwork, locking up stray bikes and telling his neighbours exactly what he thinks of them. Thankfully, his tight-knit community knows that his cantankerous veneer hides the grief and despair he feels over the death of his beloved wife. Fortunately for everyone, the arrival of new neighbours gives Ove an unexpected reason to keep going – and challenges him to rediscover in himself the man his wife loved.
