Handling the Undead

Author(s): John Ajvide Lindqvist


Across Stockholm the power grid has gone crazy. Electrical appliances turn themselves up higher and higher and cannot be disconnected. As a sense of foreboding builds, people everywhere are struck down by headaches that reach an intolerable pitch. Then it's over. Soon after, in morgues and cemeteries throughout the city, the dead start to wake. But they are not as they were in life. With wry humour and compassion, Lindqvist illuminates what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them. Equal parts family drama, social satire, piercing tragedy and disquisition on mortality, Handling the Undead is a compelling read.
