Fredrik Backman is a well-known blogger and columnist. His debut novel's protagonist was born on his blog, where over 1000 readers voted for Backman to write a novel about Ove. In 2011 he became an overnight success when one of his blog entries, "Personal message to stressed blond woman in Volkswagen", about reckless driving and parental love, became the most linked entry on Facebook ever, with 600,000 shares. A Man Called Ove has been a number 1 bestseller across Scandinavia where it has sold over half-a-million copies.
Thanks to our friends at Hachette we have three copies of A Man Called Ove to give away.
