More About the Author
When not scribbling at his desk, Paddy dances Lindy Hop, Belly Dance and Charleston, goes for long walks where he invariably gets lost, and finds unexpected new ways to cook porridge. Other things that tickle his fancy include goth, airships, the 1920s and imperial porter.
Bonus fact 1: Paddy has, on several occasions, had his arm all the way inside a cow.
Bonus fact 2: Paddy has never lost a staring contest. Not once.

Stockholm is portrayed as a beautiful city. There are great observations on the subtle differences between the Irish and the Swedes and of course between men and women. Its all hooked together with a page turning tale of modern life with all its uncerainties, opportunities, heartbreaks and fun.
The title and and cover may seem cartoonish but its a humerous allusion to one Irish guys experiences of living in Sweden. It all makes sense in the end.
If you like Nick Hornby or Tony Parsons you'll love this.
I've read my fair share of relationship drama, some I've liked, some I haven't. This book falls in the former category for several reasons. First of all, it's very well written. The lanuage flows easily, and let the reader concentrate on the story instead of stumbling over unneccecary information.
It's easy to identify with the the main characters. They, as well as the people they meet, come across as quite ordinary, sometimes nice, sometimes less so. The absence of one-sided good or bad persons make the characters interesting, and even ex-partners get a fair description.
Because the characters are complex, they can be believed to do the things they do. They get ideas, get laid and get disappointed, just like the rest of us. The story takes quite a few unexpected turns and although not everything that happen may seem funny by the characters, it's described in a way that made me smile a lot while reading.
Being from Stockholm I also enjoyed the description of my city and it's inhabitants. I recommend this book to anyone who's ever been in love, been dumped, or had to dump someone.

It's funny and catches your interest. It's hard not starting to care for the main characters. Very good description on what Sweden feels like to an outsider.Published on December 16, 2013 by Eva
I read this book nearly straight through, and laughed out loud a number of times. Mr. Kelly has a fantastic voice, and his insight into the murk and jerk of the male brain makes... Read morePublished on October 7, 2013 by Madgic
I have male friends who absolutley love it and I think it is good but I dont think I am the target audience.Published on August 26, 2013 by Cecilia Wedin
Light-hearted romp in Stockholm's singles world. Witty take on Swedish life through expat eyes. Entertaining reading, worth reading for a smile or twoPublished on April 30, 2013 by Malcolm Gibson
