Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published in Swedish as Britt-Marie var här: Stockholm : Partners in Stories, 2014. This translation originally published: London : Hodder & Stoughton, 2015.
Summary, etc.: Britt-Marie can't stand mess. She eats dinner at precisely the right time and starts her day at six in the morning because only lunatics wake up later than that. And she is not passive-aggressive. Not in the least. It's just that sometimes people interpret her helpful suggestions as criticisms, which is certainly not her intention. But at sixty-three, Britt-Marie has had enough. She finally walks out on her loveless forty-year marriage and finds a job in the only place she can: Borg, a small, derelict town devastated by the financial crisis.
Subject: Friendship > Fiction.
Man-woman relationships > Fiction.
Genre: Humorous fiction.
