Med sin uppfinning kallocain har kemisten Leo Kall försett Världsstaten med ett medel för total kontroll. Men när hans sanningsdrog öppnar vägen in till medborgarnas själar visar sig de flesta hysa vilda och heta drömmar om uppror och om Ökenstaden - en hemvist för frihet, kärlek och förtroende. Och Leo Kall börjar tvivla på Statens förträfflighet och ifrågasätta sin roll som lojal medsoldat.

Karin Boyes roman Kallocain är en kuslig vision av ett polisstyrt och militariserat samhälle. Men den gestaltar också en tro på människa förmåga att skapa en annan, levande värld.

Listener Opinions

    " This is a very unique dystopian novel in that main character is not a "hero." Leo Kall is, in fact, part of the reason that the oppressive government gets even worse, and doesn't see anything wrong with his new creation. I think this is a great read, and the ending is somewhat unexpected and definitely interesting. "

    " Written in 1940 during the world war II and before 1984 (1948), but after Brave New World (1932) and at the same time as Darkness at noon(1940) it's a novel of its time. Boye was affected by the development in Europe during these times. Having watched the Natzi party coming to life while she lived in Berlin during the 30s. Those who know me knows that all of the books above are some of my favorites. I don't know why I have this affection for dark, totalitarian descriptions, maybe it's because in all this darkness the light of the human spirit always shine brighter than the totalitarian state that tries to control us. "

    " This is a classic of pre-WWII dytopian literature. "

    " An Orwellian style book written some years before Orwell's 1984. it is OK but a feels a bit old by now. "

    " The last 50 pages made the book. "

    " A coincidence? Orwell at the same time on nearly the same subject. Quiet depressing, but the ultimate drug that makes you tell the truth gives a good chance to write the truth about people during dictatorships. Brilliant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Oscar Palmér | 8/9/2013

    " A Swedish version of "1984". "

    " A fascinating early dystopian fiction read, but by the end I was kind of bored. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 6/12/2013

    " The middle felt more like an exercise than a story, but I found the ending, beginning with Linda's speech, truly moving. I am glad I read it. "
