Ove is almost certainly the grumpiest man you will ever meet. He isn’t as young as he used to be. He drives a Saab. He points at people he doesn’t like the look of. He is described by those around his as ‘the neighbour from hell’.Every morning he makes his inspection rounds of the local streets. He moves bicycles and checks the contents of recycling bins, even though it’s been years since he was fired as Chairman of the Residents’ Association in a vicious ‘coup d’état’.

But behind the surly pedant there is a story, and a sadness. And when on a November morning his new (foreign) neighbours in the terraced house opposite accidentally flatten Ove’s letterbox, it sets off a comical and heart-warming tale of unexpected friendship which will change one man – and one community – from their very foundations. Quirky and bittersweet, heartbreaking yet outrageously funny, A Man Called Ove is a life-affirming fable for our times.
