Oskar lives with his mum in a Stockholm highrise. He has a collection of newspaper clippings about gruesome murders, and not many friends-unless you count the kids who follow him and beat him up. So when Eli moves in next door, things seem to be improving. She's a little strange, and her 'father' is frankly sinister, but at least she likes Oskar.
Then a child's body is found hanging from a tree, and all hell breaks loose. Is it a serial killer? Or something a bit…different?
The US film Let Me In is an adaptation of Let the Right One In.

The best novel I've read in a long time. The author gives great depth to the characters and the story grips you from page one.
The films do it justice too. Though if I had a preference it would be Let Me In over Let The Right One In.
A must read at any rate.
Quite literally the best book I have read. Events are explained Very well and there are alot of depth in the characters.
A literary genius
This is my favourite book ever. Lindqvist is my favourite author. The films adapted from this romanticised horror story both did this book justice with the subtlest film being almost the same.
If you want to fall in love with vampires this book will have you staying up way too late for ‘just one more chapter’ until your eyes close and you fall asleep sitting up.
