Ove is the stereotypical grumpy old man. Nothing is how it was when he was younger. No one knows how to get things right. And he wishes people wouldn’t interfere in things that are none of their business. Following his story will make you laugh, and occasionally cringe, but in the end you fall in love with him, because who doesn’t want to have things exactly the way they would like?
I would like to thank my friend Wren for sending me a copy of this book to read. She is a very good friend indeed.
