Review: "Let the Right One In" by John Ajvide Lindqvist

Let the Right One In, originally published in 2004 in Swedish under the title Låt den rätte komma in, is a fiction novel by John Ajvide Lindqvist that caught my attention when I first saw the trailer for the English-language film adaptation titled Let Me In.  After a few years of watching vampires in novels, films, and TV shows romanticized, I gravitated towards what looked like a darker depiction of these supernatural creatures. Let the Right One In was just what I needed – and more.
