內容簡介


《紐約時報》冠軍暢銷書、瑞典暢銷小說《明天別再來敲門》作者新作!

在沒落的瑞典小鎮裡,冰上曲棍球是居民唯一的夢想寄託
眼看冠軍就近在眼前,將帶領小鎮邁向繁榮,卻發生了撕裂全鎮的球隊醜聞……

Beartown是個沒落的瑞典小鎮,它被周遭的荒野所隔絕,失業率高,居民組成以藍領階級為主,唯一希望與夢想的寄託是冰上曲棍球。當鎮上的青少年曲棍球球隊打入國家準決賽,它背負著全鎮的期待,若獲得冠軍,可能得到政府補助,吸引運動員加入球隊,因此振興小鎮!然而,在一場關鍵的比賽後悲劇降臨,球隊主力凱文(Kevin)因此遭到逮捕,不僅曲棍球隊的未來岌岌可危,也撕裂了整個小鎮……

球隊之星凱文家境富裕、影響力強,他的父母是球隊贊助者;彼得(Peter)是曲棍球球社的總經理,他曾經也是球星,回到家鄉希望能振興曲棍球;彼得有個十五歲女兒瑪雅(Maya);球員阿瑪特(Amat)是移民,平常受排擠,只有在球場上能發光發熱……當凱文、瑪雅與阿瑪特三人,因為那場決定性的比賽產生交集,令人震驚的球隊醜聞如漣漪般擴散至整個小鎮,所有居民都無法置身事外! 

本書圍繞著愛與犧牲、友情與親情、希望與救贖的主題,藉由栩栩如生的角色,深入描繪不同立場與身分人們的情感、掙扎與決定,不只關於曲棍球、探討球隊的黑暗面,也是部令人心碎的成長故事。

The #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Man Called Ove returns with a dazzling, profound novel about a small town with a big dream--and the price required to make it come true.

People say Beartown is finished. A tiny community nestled deep in the forest, it is slowly losing ground to the ever encroaching trees. But down by the lake stands an old ice rink, built generations ago by the working men who founded this town. And in that ice rink is the reason people in Beartown believe tomorrow will be better than today. Their junior ice hockey team is about to compete in the national semi-finals, and they actually have a shot at winning. All the hopes and dreams of this place now rest on the shoulders of a handful of teenage boys.

Being responsible for the hopes of an entire town is a heavy burden, and the semi-final match is the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil. Accusations are made and, like ripples on a pond, they travel through all of Beartown, leaving no resident unaffected.
Beartown explores the hopes that bring a small community together, the secrets that tear it apart, and the courage it takes for an individual to go against the grain. In this story of a small forest town, Fredrik Backman has found the entire world.
