Anxious people

Backman, Fredrik

Looking at real estate isn't usually a life-or-death situation, but an apartment open house becomes just that when a bank robber bursts in and takes a group of strangers hostage. Each captive carries a lifetime of grievances, secrets, and passions waiting to boil over. None, including the bank robber, are entirely who they appear to be, and all desperately crave some kind of rescue. As authorities and the media surround the building, these reluctant allies reveal surprising truths about themselves and set into motion a chain of events so unexpected that even they can't explain what happens next.
