JOHN AJVIDE LINDQVIST is the author of Let the Right One In, Handling the Undead, and Harbor. Let the Right One In has been made into two critically acclaimed films. The Swedish film was directed by Tomas Alfredson (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and won top honors at sixteen film festivals around the globe. The American remake of the Swedish movie, entitled Let Me In, received rave reviews. Stephen King called the film, "A genre-busting triumph. Not just a horror film, but the best American horror film in the last twenty years."

“Establishes Lindqvist as Sweden’s Stephen King.”

--The Washington Post on Harbor

John Ajvide Lindqvist has been crowned the heir apparent to Stephen King by numerous sources, and he is heralded around the globe as one of the most spectacularly talented horror writers working today. His first novel, Let the Right One In, is a cult classic that has been made into iconic films in both Sweden and in the United States. His second novel, Handling the Undead, is beloved by horror fans everywhere. His third novel, Harbor, is a masterpiece that draws countless comparisons to Stephen King. Now, with Little Star, his most profoundly unsettling book yet, Lindqvist treads previously unmarked territory.

A man finds a baby in the woods, left for dead. He brings the baby home, and he and his wife raise the girl in their basement. When a shocking and catastrophic incident occurs, the couple’s son Jerry whisks the girl away to Stockholm to start a new life. There, he enters her in a nationwide singing competition. Another young girl who’s never fit in sees the performance on TV, and a spark is struck that will ignite the most terrifying duo in modern fiction.

Little Star is an unforgettable portrait of adolescence, a modern-day Carrie for the age of internet bullies, offensive reality television, and overnight You Tube sensations. Chilling, unnerving, and petrifying, Little Star is Lindqvist’s most disturbing book to date.
