Lauded by critics as “brilliant and repulsive,” Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindqvist, is one of the most acclaimed and adapted vampire novels of the 21st century.

In the autumn of 1981, the body of a teenage boy is found drained of blood in Blackeberg, the Swedish suburb where twelve-year-old Oskar lives. Bullied frequently by his peers, Oskar is a social outcast who becomes fixated on Eli, the new girl who has moved in next door. To Oskar, there is something strange and wondrous about Eli, the girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube but can solve it within hours. The girl who only comes out at night. The girl who smells of death.

With its themes of existential anxiety, social pressure, and the complications of youth, Let the Right One In is a gory vampire tale, a stirring love story, and a profound meditation on childhood love and loneliness.

First published in 2008, Let the Right One In is an international bestseller. It has been adapted into two films, both multi-award winning, as well as two stage adaptations.
