Anxious People Book PDF
Anxious People by Fredrik Backman is an adult contemporary mystery book that focuses on two cops trying to solve a bank robbery. The book also has subtle elements of humor. We see eight extremely anxious and different from each other hostages in an apartment right above the bank, where the bank robber has kept them hostages. Along the journey, these people realize they have more in common than they might think.
The story sets off when a first-time bank robber chooses to storm into a cashless bank to get a limited amount of six thousand and five hundred Swedish Kroner. Soon he realizes his mistake and when is evident that the bank has no banknotes, he attempts to escape to a nearby building. In his fury, he gets into an apartment where a viewing is held for prospective buyers.
Holding a pistol in his hand and wearing a balaclava to hide his face, he looks terrifying enough in the beginning, though very quickly he proves to be a rather unstable individual with no experience as a criminal. The hostages, who are the people that happened to be inside the apartment for the viewing at that time, are a rather distinctive group of people and each one of them has some unique character traits that will be revealed as the story progresses.
The police officers that are charged with the investigation of this parody of hostage-taking are Jim and Jack, father and son, who both work in the small town’s precinct and are thirsty for an opportunity to show to their bosses and their colleagues in Stockholm that they can handle cases of larger magnitude like this one.
Jack and Jim have a rather dysfunctional relationship and their communication is often terminated due to a wrong choice of words, or an inappropriate remark made by one of them. Their blood relation doesn’t help them much in their professional lives and besides, they are completely different as characters.
Backman uses a mixed narrative style that begins chronologically from the end of the hostage situation and in the following chapters talks about the events and interactions that took place inside the apartment after the failed robbery attempt.
