The main character of this book, Ove, — familiar to all from childhood. It is a lonely old pensioner. Others he described as “idiots”, “morons”, “cretins”. They always do everything is not so. But Uwe makes everything right. He could teach how to brew coffee, drive a car or take out the garbage. In the book “A Man Called Ove” we have to learn what lies behind the mask of the eternal dissatisfaction and how they can affect a complete stranger such things as a smile, a kind word and some attention.
By the way, in addition to everlasting grumbles Ove, Fredrik Backman contributed to its work and a considerable fraction of humor. The author describes the everyday life of an ordinary pensioner with a touch of irony and love.
