Publisher Description

From the king of horror comes a gripping and masterfully crafted series of stories including a brief sequel to Lindqvist’s internationally acclaimed Let the Right One In. 


Customs officer Tina can smell a smuggler’s guilt. Josef has a close encounter with Death—and discovers you can negotiate. Joel’s apartment building is starting to…list. 


Wickedly imaginative, gleefully bloodthirsty, Let the Old Dreams Die features a classic Lindqvist cast of lovers, loners and losers. All flawed, all touched by the desire to be loved, all deeply human. Even some of those who are not human at all.

‘A magician of genre fiction…Lindqvist again trips along that thin high wire between supernatural devices and psychological verites.’ Independent 


‘A delicate balance between macabre and moving.’ Sunday Telegraph 


‘Some of his ideas are provoking enough to provide a satisfying squirm.’ Courier-Mail 


‘A dangerously imaginative man.’ Herald Sun 


‘Although Lindqvist reminds us of the way fear and hatred of the unfamiliar makes monsters of all of us, it is not fear and hatred he is interested in, but love and the way it binds us to one another.’ James Bradley, Australian

Includes a follow up to Let the Right One In

When I read this book of short stories contained a follow up to my favourite film Let the Right One In, I bought it straight away.

Not only that but the first short story Border was just released as a feature length film.

Lindqvist never ceases to excite me with his ability to romanticise the things that should not make you fall in love with them.

His characters are amazing and the complexity of his stories touches on all sides of humanity.
