Ove is used to things being right. There’s a right way to do things and a wrong way, and Ove believes things should always be done the right way. This grumpy yet loveable man finds his world turned on its head when a boisterous young family moves in next door.
He's a curmudgeon, the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him the bitter neighbour from hell, but must Ove be bitter just because he doesn't walk around with a smile plastered on his face all the time? However, behind his cranky exterior is a story of sadness and perhaps redemption.
