From the Publisher
Absolutely chilling. This page-turner grabs you from the onset and just won't let go. Vampires at their Anne Ricean best!
Sweden's Stephen King…A classic horror-romance story. I love it. Could not stop reading. More please.
"A must for vampire fans, even those who think they've seen it all."
A brilliant take on the vampire myth, and a roaring good story.
Readers are familiar with modern Sweden through its distinctive crime fiction. Now John Ajvide Lindqvist is taking a Gothic look at the country's dark side. Henning Mankell's gloomy police procedurals were the first to become international bestsellers in the middle 1990s and spearheaded an explosion, but the latest publishing phenomenon to come out of Sweden seems to be plumping for a different genre. John Ajvide Lindqvist has become an overnight cult figure.
Let Me In, a Swedish book taking the publishing world by storm, is a different, surprising, and sometimes delightful reading experience. Delightful would not normally be the first word that springs to mind when describing a blood-soaked plot.… It is Lindqvist's great skill that a strong thread of innocence continues alongside this horror.
It is easy to compare Lindqvist to Clive Barker or Neil Gaiman. When you reach the last page, you are left with the wonderful tingling sensation that only comes with a brand-new love affair or a really great book.
Impressive…can certainly compare with some of the best international authors…Lindqvist is as learned as Anne Rice as far as the most updated vampire mythology is concerned.
One of the creepiest and most imaginative stories of the decade…echoes Stephen King at the height of his storytelling powers.
