It's an unremarkable life, I guess, nothing special. I'm in my thirties, I work part-time in a video store in Stockholm, most of my friends are busy with their families, I live alone. I suppose you'd say I have an ordinary life...But I love this city, and even though my flat is small it suits me, I'm comfortable here. In the summer, the sun shines in through my windows at just the right angle and I can hear all the sounds of summer life down in the street. And there's a really good ice-cream stall just near my building, which sells my favourite flavours. So, ordinary maybe, but happy. Yes, I think it's fair to say I'm a happy man. And isn't that enough? With a love story and a charming, surreal and funny tale about happiness, The Invoice will change the way you see your life.
