“Right One” Author Turns to Zombies!

John Ajvide Lindqvist, author of the novel Let the Right One In, has turned his attention from vampires to zombies in his new novel Handling the Undead.

Publisher’s Weekly says:

This intelligent look into the psychological side of the undead will entice longtime zombie fans eager for a subversive examination of some of the horror genre‘s most recognizable monsters.

However, Bloody Disgusting argues:

Handling the Undead trades that novel’s character depth and riveting dialogue for a shitload of slow-paced rumination and spiritual reflection. Once the novel ends, you realize how little has actually occurred.

However, some little birds tell us that the US movie rights to this novel are about to be snatched up.  We expect to see sale news some time in the next two weeks.
