Susan and Alex Wendt want to move out of their little flat and they seem to have finally found their dream home. Spacious duplex apartment in a good neighborhood, free of charge real estate agency. The owner of the house is a bit eccentric and the elderly caretaker has always mysterious notes about the cellar, but … the rent is so low that it would be a sin not to blame. But Susan soon finds out that their home is full of squids. Or is not it?
Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it’s too good to pass up.
Big mistake. Susan soon discovers that her new home is crawling with bedbugs . . . or is it? She awakens every morning with fresh bites, but neither Alex nor their daughter Emma has a single welt. An exterminator searches the property and turns up nothing. The landlady insists her building is clean. Susan fears she’s going mad—until a more sinister explanation presents itself: she may literally be confronting the bedbug problem from Hell.
