Pippa Haywood stars as a woman starting over in a doomed Swedish town. It is just a shame she is not very socially aware, according to her husband. A story of finding one's path.
Exploring the best in contemporary literature, Reading Europe reaches Scandinavia and begins with Sweden.
Britt-Marie needs purpose in her life and she takes the brave step of going out to look for it. She ends up in Borg, a typical Swedish, run-down, small town. Her part-time job leads her to an extraordinary turn of events, beyond anything she might have imagined. But she finds that bringing people into her life also brings problems and she's soon in the midst of a football drama, involved in a family crisis and at the corner of an unexpected love triangle, in this warm and humorous drama.
In part one, Britt-Marie finds herself in a new town, with a job and a lot of things to clean. She soon finds a way to let people know she's here and is thrust unexpectedly into the heart of the community, thanks to a game she doesn't understand.
