An instant #1 New York Times bestseller

The funny, touching and unpredictable new novel from the 13 million copy internationally bestselling author of A Man Called Ove.

'A brilliant and comforting read' MATT HAIG

'Funny, compassionate and wise . . . an absolute joy' A.J. PEARCE, bestselling author of Dear Mrs Bird

'I laughed, I sobbed, I recommended it to literally everyone I know' BUZZFEED

'Captures the messy essence of being human. It's clever and affecting, as likely to make you laugh out loud as it is to make you cry' WASHINGTON POST
________

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 Ana-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?
