Ove is a cantankerous Swedish retiree who never seems to find anything to be happy with. A short-tempered man who strictly abides by his own principles, he is also deeply depressed and has tried to kill himself. His life takes a turn for the better when a chatty family of four moved in next door.
Believed to be the new major Swedish novel after the The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy, Ove has turned into a global hit, and has been published in 38 languages including Arabic, Turkish, and Thai. For its eccentric humor, “A Man Called Ove” deserves to be in anyone’s Kindle book list.
