Genuinely scary . . . Vividly brought to life . . . Stockholm's answer to Stephen King? Well, Lindqvist certainly has the talent
A horror that works its spell slowly, and you'll be gripped by the end
Affectingly eerie scenario, and one which grows more and more menacingly surreal . . . haunting, memorably gruesome
Arguably the most talented horror writer of his generation, and certainly one of the most literate . . .

I Am Behind You is a book guaranteed to deliver lovers of dark fiction the foreboding, dread-soaked delights they've been hungering for. At the very least, it brings a new and utterly alien villain into the tradition of cosmic horror, and that alone is worth scaring yourself over
A compelling treatise on loneliness, alienation and the evil that lurks in every human heart
