In the course of two weeks, everything will change in Beartown.
Maya Andersson and Benji Ovich, two young men who set out in search of a life far from Forest City, return home and joyfully reunite with their closest childhood friends. There is a new sense of optimism and purpose in the city, embodied in the impressive new ice rink being built by the lake.
Two years have passed since the events that nobody wants to think about. They’ve all been trying to move on, but something about this place is holding them back.
The devastation wrought by a violent late-summer storm reignites the old rivalry between Beartown and the neighboring town of Hed, a rivalry traditionally fought between their hockey teams.
Maya’s parents, Peter and Kira, become embroiled in an investigation into the hockey club’s shady finances, and Amat, once the star of the Beartown team, goes missing after an injury and a failed attempt to be drafted into the NHL. The simmering tensions between the two cities turn into acts of intimidation and then violence.
Meanwhile, a fourteen-year-old boy drifts further and further away from this hockey-obsessed community and is determined to get revenge on the people he blames for the death of his beloved sister. He has a weapon and a plan that will bring Beartown an almost unbearable loss.
This moving novel beautifully captures all the complexities of daily life and explores themes of friendship, loyalty, loss, and identity. It challenges us to reconsider what it means to win, lose and forgive.

Two years after the event that shattered a small Swedish town, residents are once again facing prejudice. A storm reveals disparities between the town and its closest rival, but it also brings home some of the young adults who help it heal. Author Fredrik Backman takes readers to Beartown and Hed in the gripping finale of the Beartown trilogy with a fitting finale in The Winners.
Two years have passed since Kevin Erdahl raped Maya Andersson. Two years since the towns of Beartown and Hed had nearly been at each other’s throats. The consequences of the rape left Maya without legal justice but with a stronger sense of self. She made her brave enough to leave her small town in the woods and go to the big city to pursue her love of music in college.
Back in Beartown, Maya’s parents, Peter and Kira, try to find something semblance of normal again. Peter is no longer the general manager of Beartown Hockey, once the team he played for and consistently led to victory. Today, Peter works with Kira in her law office. At least that’s what they say.
Nobody wants to admit how miserable Peter is or how he should find his way back to the ice rink. Instead, Peter really goes to work with Kira and als spends the rest of his time baking bread. Lots and lots of bread. When Maya comes home from a bad storm, Peter has an excuse to spend time with her instead of kneading all day.
In another part of the world, Benji Ovich really has left the Beartown behind. Once one of the team’s really rising stars, Benji fled after Kevin left the town following his trial. The worst thing was that after Kevin’s selfishness, everyone found out that Benji was gay and bullied him. It was bad enough that people knew he and Kevin were best friends; This takes him completely away from the city.
Since then, Benji has traveled the world in search of love and fulfillment. All he finds are dingy bars and dark rooms where he wakes up alongside strangers. When news of the storm breaks, Benji has a legitimate excuse to go home instead of having to make one up.
The storm doesn’t last long, but it creates a different kind of frenzy. At one point, Beartown Hockey was on the brink of financial disaster. Now the team has a new ice rink and neighbor Hed is about to lose everything. The residents of Beartown hate the residents of Hed, but the financial machinations of a few greedy residents mean that the fates of both towns will be linked.
Author Fredrik Backman brings back his trademark whimsical writing style as he writes his most emotional novel yet about the residents of Beartown and Hed. Reflecting the reality of rape victims, Backman traces the thorny story of what happens after Maya and her loved ones. As the omniscient narrator tells us, for Maya rape is part of her existence. She many days she feels that she is still there.
This 3 book really brings Backman closer to the series than ever before. Several times the omniscient narrator of him points out that “he” is also a member of this community. There is no doubt that Backman lived with these characters for a long time, giving readers one last look at their lives before moving on.
The old characters from the previous two books return and the new characters become just as important to the narrative. Readers will have a hard time picking a favorite at the end. No one will leave the book unimpressed.
Though Backman offers a semblance of hope for most of the characters by the end—their lives have been irrevocably changed, but they’re still moving on—some readers may feel a sense of melancholy. This testament to Backman’s talent for creating this world and these people will leave many of those readers wanting to read the entire trilogy, cover to cover, as soon as they close this last book.
