Anachronisms 

During the movie we get to see all popular models of Saab and Volvo. However the registration plates on some cars are too modern. One example is the light blue Volvo 142/144 that has a sign issued more than 20 years after the car was made.

It is very obvious that two cats were used to play the one in this film. One is very white and the other has a great deal of tan in their coat.

At around 53.48mn when Ove is on the platform the clock shows 6.45am, when he comes back home to rescue the cat and goes upstairs, the little alarm clock shows 6.20am.

Audio/visual unsynchronised 

When Ove's neighbor goes into labor she is making sounds that do not match her mouth, especially when we see her from the side.

Factual errors 

In movie Ove is 59 years old, his mother died when he was 7 (character Ove 7 year). If movie time is set in 2015, his mother died in 1963. After funeral we see his father car is right hand drive, Sweden was left hand drive country until 1967. But Swedish cars had the driver on the left, even when driving on the left.

When young Ove is on the train track the train approaches behind him. The train isn't blowing its horn to warn the child. The engineer would have made sure the danger was given proper warning. The same issue when the train is passing by the other trains when Ove's father receives the paper with Ove's school grades. The engineer would have blown the horn mightily.

The paper with Ove's school grades had just a drop or two of blood. This is not plausible considering what happened to Ove's father.

Miscellaneous 

To emphasize a Spanish holiday atmosphere music by Demis Roussos can be heard. Demis Roussos is a Greek singer and his music would be more suitable to create a Greek holiday atmosphere.
