The grumpiest yet saddest old man

Take a walk in Ove’s shoes and you will understand his despair in life.  What he shows on the outside, makes him seem unsociable, and bitter at anyone who crosses his path, but inside he suffers from grief.  The further you read this story, through a series of neighborhood interactions, one perceives a glimmer of hope as he begins to connect with those around him. You will love this feel good story with a better than expected ending, written by a Swedish blogger, turned overnight sensation.
