Book review: Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman

Monday, May 9, 2016 Permalink

Last year a book called My Grandmother Sends Her Regards and Apologises was doing the rounds. I loved the titleĀ but – for reasons I now do not recall – didn’t get around to reading that book.

It wasn’t until after I finished Britt-Marie Was Here by Fredrik Backman that I discovered the Swedish blogger and columnist also authored ‘My Grandmother… etc’ and his latestĀ had a quirky and beguiling warmth that makes me realise I would have loved to read about the apologising grandmother.
