Original title: Våran hud, vårat blod, våra ben
Original publication: Ordfront
Genre: Fiction

Night after night a child waits at the berth of the Finland ferry, staring out at the sea. A lorry driver with a bloody secret picks up a hitch-hiker with suspiciously little luggage. A young couple get the chance of buying a house at a very low cost due to ”special circumstances”.

Våran hud, vårat blod, våra ben is a collection of horror stories in the unmistakable style of John Ajvide Lindqvist, that take place in contemporary Sweden, just outside our field of vision. We get to meet a number of both common as well as more unusual creatures such as ghosts, vampires, werewolves, pixies, zombies and a sea monster.

The title story which was nominated for the British Fantasy Award for Best Short Story is, according to John Ajvide Lindqvist, the most frightening story he has ever written.
