This book broke my heart - and healed it in the same time. I cannot recall previous time when I cried during reading the fiction, but this book did it to me. It's sad, charming, and fascinating. 

I'm so grateful to my sister for this gift and I'm so glad I've read this novel in the beginning of the year to remind myself about those important things which make our life truly meaningful.

And this is first movie of the year. I love scandinavian cinema, it has its own grim charm. And I like a lot Mads Mikkelsen, I noticed this actor as Le Chiffre in Casino Royale, after this was absolutely brilliant performance in Hannibal (tv series) - and these are quite big shoes to fill after Anthony Hopkins! Recently I watched another Danish movie with him as a main character (Flammen & Citronen (2008) - about resistance group during WWII). And now - this one. The psycological drama about life, death, love, and consequences of our actions, even unpredictable ones.
Also I would like to mark playing of Sidse Babett Knudsen, I've already seen this actress in Borgen and Westworld.
It's neither an action nor a thriller, but if you like to think a little about your way of life and goals (especially in the time of NY resolutions) I would definitely recommend you this movie.
