13 editions published between 1920 and 2011 in Swedish and English and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past of the alcoholic David Holm is reconstructed in flashback through his recollections as he waits in a churchyard for Death's wagon to bear him away. The novel, a tale of conversion and moral struggle, reflects the author's interest in the mystical and the supernatural with potential for visualisation. Jaenzon developed his experiments with superimposition exposing as many as four images in a single frame, creating a ghost-like effect as Holm's soul seems to leave his body. Sjostrom referred to the ghosts as "three-dimensional in their spirituality". His playing of Holm is ranked with his role as Isak Borg in Bergman's Wild Strawberries as his greatest characterisation as an actor
