From the author of the international and New York Times best seller Let the Right One In (Let Me In) comes this stunning and terrifying book which begins when a man's six-year-old daughter vanishes.

One ordinary winter afternoon on a snowy island, Anders and Cecilia take their six-year-old daughter, Maja, across the ice to visit the lighthouse in the middle of the frozen channel. 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; even his own mother, it seems, is keeping secrets. What is happening in Domaro, and what power does the sea have over the town's inhabitants?

As he did with Let the Right One In and Handling the Undead, John Ajvide Lindqvist serves up a blockbuster cocktail of suspense in a narrative that barely pauses for breath.

Listener Opinions

    " Slow to get going, with a distracting use of a meta-fictiony narrative device of which I was not overly fond, but the second Elin starts sleepwalking, I'm hooked. A handful of genuinely chilling moments occur, which is more than I can say for a lot of popular horror novels, and the ending is very cinematic, if slightly underwhelming. I don't think I've ever read a haunted island story before, and I have a feeling this is probably top of its class. "

    " Eh. I didn't hate it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bandit | 2/11/2014

    " This novel was an epic. Definitely in volume, but also in scope, it covered (in great detail) the lives of generations of residents of a small island off the coast of Sweden. It was very easy at first to become engrossed with their lives, the author does some very good descriptive writing and he really spends a lot of time fleshing out his characters. The horror aspect in this book is less traditional...first it was his take on vampires, then on zombies, but in this story the antagonist is the sea itself surrounding the island, deep, dark and insiduous. I really enjoyed the writing and the characters, there were some genuinely terrifying situations and it was undeniably atmospheric, the main problem with this book was the pacing, it slowed and occasionally dragged making the book downright laborious to read. Recommended, but patience is required. "

    " Got too wierd - had to give up and also really brutal - not nice at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marie | 1/30/2014

    " Last book I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Superangela | 1/28/2014

    " Good supernatural book that starts with a little girl practically vanishing in the middel of the ice close to the Island where her parents have a "cottage". After two years the father goes back looking for a fresh start, having divorced hsi wife after turning to drinking himself unconcious. He starts discovering that there have been many vanishings similar to what his daughter went through, why do these happen? What are the citizens of Domoro hiding? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 1/17/2014

    " Suspenseful, well-written, and capable of evading time and space in the most perfect manner. This is not my usual genre, but in my opinion, this book triggers the same eerie mysteries and curiousities as the very best Stephen King novel. Recommend for all thrill-seeking readers alike. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Danielle | 1/7/2014

    " Great book. Twists and turns all the way through. Highly reccommend. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Patti Meyer | 12/6/2013

    " interesting, but a tough read. Think I need to stay away from foreign authors. I don't get a lot of the local jargon and habits...... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Yellowoasis | 11/14/2013

    " I thought this was going to be a straightforward crime thriller, so once the supernatural element was introduced I stopped reading. Meh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 11/9/2013

    " This book disappointed me. I really liked Lindqvist's Let The Right One In and Handling The Undead, so I had high hopes for this one, but it ended up being kind of lame. I wasn't frightened or disturbed at all when reading it, just bored. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fred | 10/23/2013

    " In the tradition of Stephen King, Lindqvist presents a supernatural tale replete with human frailty, other-worldly forces, and the triumph of Good over Evil. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katharine | 10/8/2013

    " This is my first experience with Swedish horror and I have to say, I probably won't go back to this author nor this genre. While I found the characterization to be very interesting, the plot and the elements of horror were a little too slow for my taste. I'm glad I tried it, but next time I'll pass. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thatsrite | 9/8/2013

    " I was just interested in this story enough to have to finish it. Ultimately an unsatisfying ending. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Konrad | 2/20/2013

    " Didn't get it at all, was a chore to complete. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly McKenzie | 1/1/2013

    " I loved this book! I wish I had another Lindqvist book to read, but I've devoured them all. :-( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rae M. | 11/1/2012

    " Lindqvist has done it again. He's completely brilliant. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kath | 2/23/2012

    " I liked this book, all of it except the ending. Sorta ridiculous and anti-climactic. Seems Lindqvist really IS comparable to Stephen King. He had some lame endings as well. All in all, I'm glad I read it. Now on to The Guards by Ken Bruen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jack Gould | 1/16/2012

    " A bit slower than Handling and LTROI, but I actually loved it, as ever with Lindqvist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ExLibris | 9/23/2011

    " So far very good... cannot put it down... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 9/21/2011

    " This is more 4.5 stars. My one quibble with the book is length. Fascinating and spooky, otherwise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thera | 9/20/2011

    " not my favorite. not bad, but definitely a little out there. some things weren't explained well enough for me, and there were loose ends at the end. "
