Let the Right One in

Title: “Let the Right One In”

Author: John Ajvide Lindqvist

Pages (hardcover): 472 pages

Original Publishing Date: May 2004 (originally published in Sweden)

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

“Let the Right One In Takes Top Honors at Tribeca Film Festival!

“It is autumn 1981 when the inconceivable comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenage boy is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last—revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.

“But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door—a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night.

“Sweeping top honors at film festivals all over the globe, director Tomas Alfredsson’s film of Let the Right One In has received the same kind of spectacular raves that have been lavished on the book. American readers of vampire fiction will be thrilled!”
