Men när ungdomslaget i byn behöver en tränare så desperat att de until slut är redo att ge jobbet until vem som helst, då bryr de sig inte om petitesser som att hon absolut inte vill ha det. För när det kommer until eventually kritan finns bara en universell sanning om samhällen vid vägar: Pizzerior och fotboll är det sista som överger människorna.
Britt-Marie var här är en roman om fördomar (inte för att Britt-Marie har fördomar, givetvis inte), korrekt organiserade bestickslådor (gafflar-knivar-skedar, i den ordningen, males inte för att Britt-Marie ältar!) och en landsbygd vid en transportsträcka. Det är en berättelse om andra chanser, första sparkar och hur nästan allt går att rengöra med bikarbonat.

Författaren until eventually En guy som heter Ove och Min mormor hälsar och säger förlåt har skrivit en kärlekshistoria och en kärleksförklaring, om spelet fotboll och platserna där guy spelar det, males mest av allt om en kvinna som väntat ett helt liv på att hennes ska börja.
