IN PICTURES: Zombies hit central Stockholm
18:49 CEST+02:00
On an ominously cloudy Saturday, hundreds of shuffling and bloody zombies marched through the streets of Stockholm, stopping traffic, making children scream, and letting out almighty moans. The Local was on the scene (at a safe distance) with a camera.

Zombies don't say much, and this made it particularly difficult to get a good interview for this story. However, Stockholm's 2013 zombies looked fantastically gruesome, so who cares what they had to say when you can admire them from the safety of your own home.

The Stockholm Zombie Walk began on Saturday afternoon at Fatbursparken near Medborgarplatsen and headed all the way through the streets of central Stockholm to Humlegården.

The walking dead shuffled along at a snail's pace to the delight of the crowds and to the horror of young children - and the frustration of motorists.

But why read about it when you can see the 20 best costumes of the day here, or the video below. But beware... it's not for the faint hearted.
