Set in Sweden, it tells the story of a bank robbery gone wrong, a small group of extremely nervous hostages, and two policemen working hard to unravel what’s happened. The narrator found it laugh-out-loud funny for most of the book.

Anxious People: A Novel by Fredrik Backman is a charming, poignant novel about a crime that never took place, a would-be bank robber who disappears into thin air, and eight extremely anxious strangers who find they have more in common than they ever imagined. Exploring themes of idiocy, human nature, and the struggle of daily life, the book is a witty and heartwarming exploration of the messiness of living, with a rich narrative that prompts reflection on marriage, parenting, and global economic pressures.
