Descripción del libro
Europe in a the near future: The newly founded tsarist empire of Russia has forcibly annexed the entire Baltic region, wiping out every trace of Estonian culture. After the war Viljandi, a little town in the heart of the country, became a melting pot for bohemians and failed existences from all over the new tsarist empire. Even a in Poland captured tram now rattles through the city.
One morning the thief Konstantin Opiatowitsch robs a man in the tram, who turns out to be the Russian literary classic Nikolai Gogol, who has after 170 years returned from the dead. With his bunch of dubious yet charming criminals and dawdlers, Opiatovich tries to make some profit out of the revenant - but Gogol unleashes a nightmare for his kidnappers instead, releasing chaos all over Viljandi.
