Author(s): John Ajvide Lindqvist
In September 1985, nineteen-year-old John Lindqvist moved into a dilapidated old building in Stockholm, planning to make his living as a magician. Something strange was going on in the locked shower room in the building's basement--and the price of entry was just a little blood.
I Always Find You is a horror story--as bizarre and macabre as any of Lindqvist's earlier novels--but it's also a melancholy meditation on being young and lonely, on making friends and growing up. It's about magic, and the intensity of human connection--and the evil we carry inside.
John Ajvide Lindqvistlives in Sweden, and has worked as a magician and stand-up comedian. His first novel, the international bestseller Let the Right One In, was published in more than thirty countries.
Marlaine Delargyis based in the UK. She has translated novels by Swedish writers including Kristina Ohlsson, Viveca Sten and Johan Theorin--with whom she won the CWA International Dagger 2010 for The Darkest Room.
