The thing with any novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist is to remember the stages of reading.

Not a bit horror reader, but I really, really enjoyed this all the same. A lot of, you know, horror. I loved how mundanely, boringly fucked up the normal characters were.

Had to pick it up to read the short story that is a "sequel" to [b:Let the Right One In|943402|Let the Right One In|John Ajvide Lindqvist|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327893384s/943402.jpg|928338]. Turns out it was nothing very interesting, and like the shorter stories in this collection one of the weakest in it. The more room Lindqvist takes to build his stories, to slowly increase the anxiety and horror and dread, the better they turn out.

My favorites are two almost novella length stories, Tindalos and Final Processing. The former brings in the Hounds of Tindalos from the Cthulhu mythos. A woman came to the attention of such an entity due to a violent childhood incident, and it spends the next three decades searching for her through time and space, finally locating her as she is in the midst of a collapsing marriage (horror finds horror). The resolution is violent, surprising and satisfying.

Final Processing is a sequel to [b:Handling the Undead|4328472|Handling the Undead|John Ajvide Lindqvist|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1328152386s/4328472.jpg|2828796], and resolves the ultimate fate of the "reliving". The ending is a bit problematic, because no way would the location of this resolution be so casually and incompetently guarded, and the nature of the mysterious Stranger must have gotten lost in translation somehow, but up until that point it is an intriguing story.

Other stories of note are The Border, in which a woman discovers that she isn't nearly so human as she was raised to believe, Equinox, in which a lonely woman discovers a dead body in strange circumstances and finds that it wasn't really the best choice to unburden her worries and problems to, and Eternal/Love, in which a near-drowning victim believes he has found the secret to eternal life and wants to share it with his wife. Perhaps you will not be surprised to hear that that does not end well.

That leaves six remaining stories that I wouldn't really recommend bothering with, however they're all fairly short so at least you won't spend much time on them if you do.
