The Atlas Vampire is the nickname given to the unknown assailant who committed the unsolved "Vampire Murder" (also known as the Vampire Murder Case) in Stockholm, Sweden in 1932.

On May 4, 1932, a 32-year-old prostitute, Lilly Lindeström, was found murdered in her small apartment in the Atlas area of Stockholm near Sankt Eriksplan. She had been dead for a couple of days, her skull had been crushed, and the detectives noticed that someone had been drinking her blood.
