From the 18 million copy internationally bestselling author of A Man Called Ove
_______

It's New Year's Eve and House Tricks estate agents are hosting an open viewing in an up-market apartment when an incompetent bank robber rushes in and politely takes everyone hostage.

For Anna-Lena and Roger, busy buying-up apartments to fill the hole in their marriage, it's something else to talk about.

For Julia and Ro, panicky parents-to-be, it's yet another worry.

Lonely bank manager Zara only came here for the view.

While 87-year-old grandmother Estelle seems rather pleased by the company . . .

As the police gather outside, the anxious strangers huddled within try to make the best of a very sticky situation - but could it be that they have a whole lot more in common than meets the eye?

A fun, intuitive read

Once I got used to the writing style, and after the characters had stopped annoying me (which wasn’t too far in!) I really enjoyed this story and the insight the author gave into each of their feelings, worries and anxieties.

Interesting

Book is full of surprises. Plays on your consciousness. This book is relatable as it depicts the behaviours of people in everyday life. Book will leave you more curious and gives a new view of how we look at people and what happening in their life. Reading through can be a bit confusing but story ties up all in the end. In the end you have to laugh because the book played you and teach you in the end.
