    Let Me In is the horrific tale of Oskar and Eli. It begins with the grizzly discovery of the body of a teenage boy, emptied of blood. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last - revenge for all the bad things the bullies at school do to him. While Oskar is fascinated by the murder, it is not the most important thing in his life. A new girl has moved in next door. They become friends. Then something more. But there is something wrong with her, something odd.

While the couple explore the lighthouse, Maja disappears - either into thin air or under thin ice - leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, alone and more or less permanently drunk, Anders returns to the island to regroup. He slowly realizes that people are not telling him all they know....

    John Ajvide Lindqvist's novel, a huge best seller in his native Sweden, is a unique and brilliant fusion of social novel and vampire legend. And a deeply moving fable about rejection, friendship and loyalty. Oskar and Eli. In very different ways, they were both victims. Which is why, against the odds, they became friends. And how they came to depend on one another, for life itself. Oskar is a 12-year-old boy living with his mother on a dreary housing estate at the city's edge. Eli is the young girl who moves in next door.

    Molly wakes her mother to go to the toilet. The campsite is strangely blank. The toilet block has gone. Everything else has gone, too. This is a place with no sun. No god. Just four families remain. Each has done something to bring them here - each denies they deserve it. Until they see what's coming over the horizon, moving irrevocably towards them. Their worst mistake. Their darkest fear. And, for just one of them, their homecoming.

    In September 1985, 19-year-old John Lindqvist moves into a dilapidated old building in Stockholm, planning to make his living as a magician. Something strange is going on in the building's basement - and the price of entry is just a little blood. I Always Find You is a horror story - as bizarre and macabre as any of Lindqvist's best-selling novels. It's also a book about being young and lonely, about making friends and growing up. It's about magic, and the intensity of human connection - and a society's communal responsibility for a devastating act of political violence.

Sie begeben sich nacheinander auf das Feld hinaus und begegnen dort ihren persönlichen Alpträumen.
