De har ikke set hinanden i 35 år, men fra barnsben og indtil de var 18 år gamle, var de uadskillelige, som brødre. Det var et venskab, der var lige så naturligt som det at trække vejret. Da de mødes igen, står Jim og fisker på broen, og Tommy kommer kørende i sin nye Mercedes. Fortid møder nutid i det døgn vi følger dem, i starten af september, 2006.

    Young Arvid Jansen lives on the outskirts of Oslo. It's the early '60s; his father works in a shoe factory, and his Danish mother works as a cleaner. Arvid has nightmares about crocodiles and still wets his bed at night, but slowly he begins to understand the world around him. Vivid images accompany each new event: A photo of his mother as a young woman makes him cry as he realizes how time passes, and the black car that comes to collect his father on the day Arvid's grandfather dies reminds him of the passing of his bullfinch.

    Per Petterson tager os i I kølvandet med på en rejse til nattens ende. Romanens jeg-fortæller, forfatteren Arvid Jansen, befinder sig i et eksistentielt tomrum - i kølvandet på en katastrofe, som trækker dybe spor i hans liv. En rå og øm, sårbar og barsk historie om at miste fodfæstet i tilværelsen, men mesterligt fortalt i et glasklart rytmisk sprog og med en varm sort humor.

    En kvinde ser tilbage på sin barndom i 30’erne og 40’erne i en lille havneby i Nordjylland. Faren oplever en social deroute, og hendes dybt religiøse mor søger trøst i at digte salmer. En gang om måneden spænder bedstefaren hesten for vognen for at køre til byen og drikke sig fra sans og samling. En dag står tyskerne i byen, og fra radioen lyder Staunings opfordring til at udvise ro og orden. Centralt i historien står forholdet mellem fortælleren og hendes storebror Jesper, der går ind i modstandsbevægelsen.
