Year 16, Book 53

53. Anxious People by Fredrick Backman

The story of a group of strangers who get stuck together in an apartment after someone takes them hostage in attempt to escape the police after a bank robbery gone wrong. It’s also the story of the father and son policemen trying to solve the case and figure out what happened to the bank robber after the hostages were set free. There are definitely some clever things that play with your preconceptions and stereotypes, but on the whole it was probably a bit too twee for me. I give it a 6 out of 10.
