From the Inside Flap
Lennart Cedeström was walking in the forest when he saw it. A baby girl lying in a plastic bag. Horrified, he rushed to give her the kiss of life. But what happened next changed his life forever. Her first breath was something astounding - a perfect musical note. For an ageing singer, this incredible child was irresistible, and Lennart could only hurry her home and take her into his care. Fearing the watchful eyes of the authorities, Lennart decided to hide his foundling daughter from view. So he and his wife kept her in their basement. Was what she became Lennart's fault for choosing to hide her? Did the person who abandoned her in the woods know something terrible lay in her future? Or was it just a trick of fate to turn the little star into the most terrifying thing imaginable? In this, John Ajvide Lindqvist's fourth masterpiece, he effortlessly ratchets up the tension until the story reaches its terrible conclusion. In doing so, he confirms his place as the undisputed new king of horror.
