Count Oederland

by Max Frisch translated by Michael Bullock

American Psycho meets V for Vendetta

A private act of revolt becomes an infectious underground movement. A Swiss bank clerk commits the seemingly senseless murder of a colleague. The public prosecutor assigned to the case finds he understands the murderer better than himself. Thousands join in and ‘take to the axe’ as those in power struggle to understand and contain the violence.

It is a movement without politics and without demands – a movement for freedom, but from what and at what cost?

Max Frisch is Switzerland’s best-known and most controversial author and dramatist, most famous for plays such as The Fire Raisers and Andorra.
