內容簡介

  紐約時報百萬暢銷作家-菲特烈.貝克曼全新小說作品

  一場銀行搶劫莫名其妙變成人質挾持事件,一處開放參觀的待售公寓莫名其妙變成犯罪地點,促成八個人的相遇

  令人捧腹大笑,卻又萬分感動,埋藏著人心美好之作

  瑞典的這個小鎮上,以為又將是平凡度過的這一天,把鏡頭移到銀行的附近,會發現有個人帶著奇怪的面具,正緩緩靠近銀行…

  本來參觀房地產也不是一個什麼生死關頭的行為,誰知道突然闖進不知哪來的銀行搶劫犯,還是失敗的那種,一股腦地把裡面的人都挾持了。偏偏這群人質的組成實在是不能再更糟了:一對熱愛搶購中古屋準備翻修轉賣,卻不願意修復自己婚姻的夫妻;一個成功的銀行經理,後悔自己曾經過度投入工作,沒有珍惜過身邊的人;一對即將迎來新生命的情侶,可是他們好像對任何事情都沒有共識;一位80多歲的老奶奶,見多識廣的她面對威脅仍能保持鎮定。不過這位老奶奶也沒說實話,因為她並非真的要替女兒看房子,她的丈夫也沒有在外頭找車位。

  屋內的壓力隨著警方和記者包圍公寓而攀升,這群陌生人在緊張的氣氛下開始分享內心最深的秘密,很快地,搶匪發現他必須作出抉擇:應該踏出去向警方自首,還是繼續跟這群怪人待在這間屋子裡?

  From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove and "writer of astonishing depth" (The Washington Times) comes a poignant comedy 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.
 
  Viewing an apartment normally doesn't turn into a life-or-death situation, but this particular open house becomes just that when a failed bank robber bursts in and takes everyone in the apartment hostage. As the pressure mounts, the eight strangers slowly begin opening up to one another and reveal long-hidden truths.
 
  First is Zara, a wealthy bank director who has been too busy to care about anyone else until tragedy changed her life. Now, she's obsessed with visiting open houses to see how ordinary people live-and, perhaps, to set an old wrong to right. Then there's Roger and Anna-Lena, an Ikea-addicted retired couple who are on a never-ending hunt for fixer-uppers to hide the fact that they don't know how to fix their own failing marriage. Julia and Ro are a young lesbian couple and soon-to-be parents who are nervous about their chances for a successful life together since they can't agree on anything. And there's Estelle, an eighty-year-old woman who has lived long enough to be unimpressed by a masked bank robber waving a gun in her face. And despite the story she tells them all, Estelle hasn't really come to the apartment to view it for her daughter, and her husband really isn't outside parking the car.
 
  As police surround the premises and television channels broadcast the hostage situation live, the tension mounts and even deeper secrets are slowly revealed. Before long, the robber must decide which is the more terrifying prospect: going out to face the police, or staying in the apartment with this group of impossible people.
 
  Rich with Fredrik Backman's "pitch-perfect dialogue and an unparalleled understanding of human nature" (Shelf Awareness), Anxious People's whimsical plot serves up unforgettable insights into the human condition and a gentle reminder to be compassionate to all the anxious people we encounter every day.
