In September 1985, nineteen-year-old John Lindqvist moved into a dilapidated old building in Stockholm, planning to make his living as a magician. Something strange was going on in the locked shower room in the building’s basement—and the price of entry was just a little blood.
I Always Find You is a horror story—as bizarre and macabre as any of Lindqvist’s earlier novels—but it’s also a melancholy meditation on being young and lonely, on making friends and growing up. It’s about magic, and the intensity of human connection—and the evil we carry inside.

Sydney Morning Herald
Guardian ‘The strength of the novel lies in the author’s calm, unhurried reporting of increasingly supernatural events, and his decision to have a fictional version of himself as narrator, which lends an unsettling autobiographical element and grounds the story in reality.’
‘As imaginative and brilliant as any of Stephen King’s famous stories…Eerie and compelling.’
‘[A] tale of a strange evil force.’
‘Mixes the ordinary with the macabre to provide a story that will leave you pondering…Perfectly chilling.’
‘A genuine skin-crawler of a book.’
‘Lindqvist manages a near-perfect blend of moving and macabre.’
‘A bizarre read, seriously inventive and wildly different.’
