Synopsis

Hreggvidur, an old right-winger, dies of a heart attack while trying to publish an article in The Conservative Paper. Hreggvidur has been a regular contributor for decades and he disagrees with the new editorial policy. Thus he rises up from the dead to terrorise the editor into publishing the article.
