Book Description

Oct. 11 2011

John Ajvide Lindqvist has taken the horror world by storm. His first novel, Let the Right One In, has been made into critically acclaimed films in both Sweden and in the U.S (as Let Me In). His second novel, Handling the Undead, is beloved by horror lovers everywhere. Now, with Harbor, a stunning and chilling masterpiece, Lindqvist firmly cements his place as the heir apparent to Stephen King.

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 they are exploring the lighthouse, Maja disappears – either into thin air or under thin ice -- leaving not even a footprint in the snow.

Two years later, Anders, a broken man, moves back to his family’s abandoned home on the island. He soon realizes that Maja's disappearance is only one of many strange occurrences, and that his fellow islanders, including his own grandmother, know a lot more than they’re telling. As he digs deeper, Anders begins to unearth a dark and deadly secret at the heart of this small, seemingly placid town.

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

Review

"Like Stephen King, Lindqvist makes deft use of contemporary pop culture.... Like King, Lindqvist is a master at evoking the claustrophobic atmosphere of a small, self-contained community whose denizens are as cursed by their own history as by the uncanny, terrifying events of the present."
--The Washington Post
 
"John Ajvide Lindqvist is rightly seen as one of the most exciting writers working in the horror genre at the moment – a rival, indeed, to Stephen King."
--The Scotsman
 
"A spooky pleasure, expertly told."
--Kirkus Reviews
 
"Enthralling dark fantasy."
--Publishers Weekly

JOHN AJVIDE LINDQVIST is the author of Handling the Undead and international sensation Let the Right One In, which has been made into critically acclaimed films in both Sweden and the United States (as Let Me In). The Swedish film based on the book, for which Lindqvist wrote the screenplay, won top honors at the Tribeca Film Festival, as well as at film festivals around the globe. Of the American film, Stephen King commented, "Let Me In is a genre-busting triumph. Not just a horror film, but the best American horror film in the last twenty years...Rush to it now. You can thank me later."

Lindqvist became an author after careers as a magician and as a stand-up comic. He has also written for television. His books are published in twenty-nine countries; he lives in Sweden.

4.0 out of 5 stars Unique and interesting Oct. 21 2011
By Carmen
Format:Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Lindqvist did a good job of slowly introducing the supernatural into this story, making it more believable than if he had hit us over the head with it at the beginning of the book. I found that even with 500 pages the read was fairly quick. It is reminiscent of a Stephen King with the way it entwines reality with mysterious and unexplainable happenings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Suspenseful, but long. March 9 2014
Format:Hardcover
This novel was a bit longer than it needed to be. It didn’t have the same flare as “Let the Right One In” or “Handling the Undead”. This one felt much slower. The characters are probably the most developed characters I’ve ever seen from this author as they’re rich, flawed, doubting and loyal (sometimes to a fault) but their ongoing development stifled the storyline, for me.

The author has an amazing ability to create something new from myth. He also has some suspenseful moments that kept me on my toes and a few shocking ones that had me re-reading passages just to make sure 'that actually happened'. Though this one didn't compare to the others I will still be eager to pick up his next novel. John Ajvide Lindqvist is very talented and I look forward to what he might tackle next.
