John Ajvide Lindqvist
‘Reminiscent of Stephen King at his best. Best read by sunlight’ Independent on Sunday
Something very peculiar is happening in Stockholm. There’s a heatwave on and people cannot turn their lights out or switch their appliances off. Then the terrible news breaks. In the city morgue, the dead are waking up.

What everybody wants: to come home.
‘Some books are just too good. Handling the Undead is superbly written, with beautifully drawn, fully realised characters, a lively, well-constructed narrative and a wonderfully paced and balanced plot. It’s an intensely atmospheric book … it’s a masterpiece, fantastically well-written and totally gripping’ SFX magazine. * SFX * ‘It’s not often I come across a writer as original, compelling or as inventive as Lindqvist … the haunting imagery stays lodged in the mind long after the book is finished’ Mail On Sunday. * Mail On Sunday * ‘Reminiscent of Stephen King at his best.
