The Deal of a Lifetime…by #FredrikBackman

The Deal of a Lifetime…by #FredrikBackman

You’ll be waking up soon, it’s Christmas Eve in Helsingborg, and I’ve killed a person.     An absentee father who is more worried about making lots of money than raising his son seeks to explain his actions. It includes a Backman style twist at the end.   Fredrik Backman writes some of my favorites characters (Ove, Britt-Marie, Elsa’s grandmother). So, I was hoping for some fun and quirky characters in this short Christmas novella. I quickly found out that this was not the case. It is a story about morality and it is meant to get you thinking about what is important in life.   While not my favorite Backman book it will definitely was worth reading. At well under 100 pages, it is also a quick read. Well worth giving an hour or so of your reading time.
