What appears as the ground floor is actually the basement, which because of the uneven ground is entirely above ground at this end of the house.
But from the beginning Eli was just Eli. Nothing. Anything. And he is still a mystery to me. John Ajvide Lindqvist

Happened to find a video today on youtube, showing an apartment on Ibsengatan in Blackeberg that is for sale. As fas as I can tell, this apartment has exactly the same layout as the one Oskar was supposed to live in. It is situated in the house across Ibsengatan relative to the one where "Oskar lived".
Interesting how this rather ordinary, empty apartment assumes significance when we imagine the scenes from the book and film taking place within it. Thanks for sharing!

Wow!! Wish I could live there! Seems so cozy!
perhaps one did not want to be loved so much as to be understood

What would I do were I the one showing the apartment? How about something subtle? such as a framed copy of the Morse Code alphabet, preferably hand done but neatly, on a wall in the bedroom. You know which one.
