In his new novel, John Ajvide Lindqvist does for zombies what his previous novel, Let the Right One In, did for vampires.

Across Stockholm the power grid has gone crazy. In the morgue and in cemeteries, the recently deceased are waking up. One grandfather is alight with hope that his grandson will be returned, but one husband is aghast at what his adored wife has become.

A horror novel that transcends its genre by showing what the return of the dead might really mean to those who loved them.

The Washington Post - Yvonne Zipp

…Lindqvist is a master philosopher of the horror genre, and in his thoughtful, almost gently written Handling the Dead, the evil doesn't come from the recently deceased, but from the living.
