I really liked the first Backman book I read, so started to reserve more from my library.
He’s popular. So it takes weeks to get any of his novels.
Us Against You was published 2018.
It’s set in a small Swedish town — Beartown — that is hockey crazed.
In some ways, that reminded me of small towns in the USA that care far too much about High School football.
One of the star players is convicted of rape. Other players move to a rival town team in protest.
Beartown’s team could be disbanded.
Overall I’d say Us Against You is good. Not great.
But I will continue with Backman.
