59-year old Ove is quite possibly one of the grumpiest people you’ll meet but, he has been an upstanding pillar of the community for decades. The last six months have taken their toll and he decides perhaps that life is not worth living.  Ove lives in a residential area of which he is fanatical about maintaining and keeping to the rules.  A family of a pregnant mother, two daughters and an IT consultant dad move in next door.  Ove resents them.  He resents everything and everyone and so he plans his death but each attempt is thwarted mostly by people needing help.  Ove is a very practical man and so he helps, yet he remains exasperated that other people’s lives are beginning to intrude upon him.  Quirky, uplifting, charming, sad, life-affirming and totally irresistible, this is a perfect gem that will leave you with a spring in your step. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
