The killer of the highway


Tassos Goudelis


The Highway Killer describes a person’s car ride on a highway and his relationship with a solitary (?) hitchhiker he picks up. As the news on the car radio warns of a killer who stalks the highway, the driver tells the other man that they look so much alike they could be doubles. He confesses that he has inherited a fear of the “double” from similar obsessions harboured by his father who was terrified by the idea that at some point and quite unexpectedly he would meet a literal facsimile of himself, that is to say the incarnation of Death. He adds that to avoid being unprepared for this meeting he goes constantly up and down the highway with his car hoping to avoid any such encounter.
