Biographical note:

JOHN AJVIDE LINDQVIST is the author of Handling the Undead, Harbor, and Little Star. Let the Right One In has been made into critically acclaimed films in both Sweden and the US. The Swedish film won top honors at sixteen film festivals around the globe. Stephen King called the American remake, titled Let Me In, "A genre-busting triumph. Not just a horror film, but the best American horror film in the last twenty years."

Excerpt from book:

The Border
 
 
Even when the man first appeared in the doorway, Tina knew he had something to hide. With each step that he took toward the customs desk she became more sure. When he selected the green lane Nothing to Declare and walked right by her, she said, “Excuse me, would you mind stopping a moment?” and glanced at Robert to make sure he was with her. Robert nodded curtly. People who were about to be caught could take desperate measures in order to escape. Especially if they were smuggling anything that could land them in jail. And that was the case with this man. Tina was sure of it.
“Would you please put your bag here?”
The man placed a small suitcase on the counter, unlocked it, and lifted the lid. He was accustomed to this, something his appearance testified to: an angular face, low forehead, small deeply set eyes under heavy brows. A beard and half-long hair. Could have played a Russian assassin in an action film.
Tina leaned across the counter and at the same time pressed the concealed alarm bell. Her senses told her with 100 percent certainty that the man was carrying something illegal. Maybe he was armed. In the corner of her eye she saw Leif and Andreas go stand in the doorway to the inner room, waiting.
The suitcase did not contain much. Some clothes. A driving map and a couple of Mankell bestsellers, a telescope, and a magnifying glass. A digital camera that Tina lifted up in order to examine it more closely, but her sense told her that it wasn’t anything.
At the very bottom of the bag there was a large metal container with a lid. In the center of the lid there was a round counter with a needle. A cord was attached to the side of the container.
“What is this?” she asked.
“Take a guess,” the man said and raised his eyebrows as if he found the situation enormously funny. Tina met his gaze, which held a great calm. That could be due to two reasons: he was either crazy or he was sure she wouldn’t find what he was hiding.
The third alternative—that he didn’t have anything to hide—she didn’t even consider. She knew.
The only reason that she was working in Kapellskär was that it was located so close to her home. She could have worked wherever she liked. Customs offices across the country requested her services whenever a significant drug cache was expected. Sometimes she would go, stay for a few days in Malmö or Helsingborg until she had pointed out the smuggler. Often pointing out a cigarette or human smuggler while she was at it. Her sense was as good as 100 percent accurate. The only thing that could cause her to err was if an individual was carrying something that was not against the law but that the person in question was eager to conceal.
Inevitably sex toys of various kinds came to light that way. Dolls, vibrators, movies. In Gothenburg she stopped a man on the ferry from England whose bag had turned out to contain a great deal of science fiction: Asimov, Bradbury, Clarke. The man had looked around nervously, his bag wide open on the counter and when she spotted his clerical collar she had closed it and bid him a good day.
Three years ago she had been in the United States working the border in Tijuana. She had pointed out five people who were smuggling heroin—two of them internally, packed in co
Praise for Little Star:
"Dubbed the Stephen King of Sweden, Lindqvist lives up to the billing with a chilling tale of two teenage girls who team up as a terrifying singing duo bent on revenge against anyone who has ever crossed them." —New York Post

"A future horror classic and a firm pronouncement that John Ajvide Lindqvist is a force to reckoned with. Brilliant. A true horror story." —MTV.com

"As good a horror novel as I’ve read all year...Truly establishes Lindqvist as a horror heavyweight. Intermittently touching, disturbing, and horrifying."
—BloodyDisgusting.com

Praise for Harbor:
"Sweden’s answer to Stephen King.” —Daily Mirror (UK)
