A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman

Ove is a grumpy widower who just wants to kill himself and end it all. However, his suicide attempts are conveniently (or, inconveniently, if you ask Ove) interrupted by the noisy family who just moved in next door.

Translated from Swedish, this book is a delightful read about finding life after loss and creating family in a community. Sweet, funny, and hopeful.
