Ulfa, you pronounce your name more like O-vah or Oov-a? *confused* Thank you for cluing us in because I was no doubt mentally pronouncing your name wrong in addition to saying Ove like Ohhhveee for sure.

I CAN'T WAIT TO CLICK ON Y'ALLS SPOILER TABS.

Reading this really really makes me want to go to an Ikea. AND also, I wonder why the translator changed kph to mph (don't they use kilometers in Sweden?) but didn't make other translation choices like changing kronor to dollars or when he describes the Lanky One's height as being obnoxiously over six feet. Why bother to make the change? Just leave it metric. I love the metric system.

BUT ANYWAY LIKE I WAS SAYING.... I love this book and I've barely gotten started (about 10% done?). I have to say, I do think it's a little predicatable, but that doesn't make me enjoy it any less, because I adore the narration and Ove reminds me a bit of my dad and the various other curmudgeons in my life.
