4.0 out of 5 stars
Good selection of chillers, 22 Aug. 2014
Plenty of scares here to keep fans of horror happy. The introduction laments how the genre has struggled to assert itself in this age rife with 'horror lite' fiction. This selection does more than a decent job of biting back. Favourite story? The Music of Bengt Karlsson, Murderer. The author, John Ajvide Lindqvist, states in his notes how it was an unsettling experience writing the story and a relief to finish. I can see why - it's a dark but memorable tale.
