Regarding the book, as outlined I can understand where dongregg is coming from. Both book and film may have their origins in the same core story, but from stalking these forums for the last couple o' days I gathered as much that there are some major areas in which they both differ -- and this isn't necessarily limited to the inherent traits of the medium they both utilize. Let The Right One In is such a haunting movie, completely as it is, that one might not want that original experience to be tarnished. As much of the more delicate parts where either left out of the film or deliberately made more ambiguous , your experience may change after reading the book one way or another. Strangely I hadn't seen the movie until last year, when it aired on TV (dubbed). When I had the movie home on DVD and watched it in its original language, with Eli being dubbed anyways, that was already a different experience. For the German dubbing, they took a young girl to dub Eli. Obviously the much deeper voice of the original made for quite a change in character already. And as movies go, the film hugely benefits of Johan Söderqvist's score.

Still, the book's on its way to my home and I will let it in. Looking at places to stay in/near Blackeberg, it seems Blackeberg itself doesn't have any hostels or motels of any kind. I was secretly hoping to find something near the station, but that seems illogical as it's mainly a residential area with like 8,000 inhabitants and not much business (candy shops aside, maybe ;) ). It's only Bromma, the Stockholm borough it belongs to, that has: http://www.booking.com/searchresults.de ... abbf0b0cd8 8,000 actually seems quite a lot of people for so little space, that is double the inhabitants of my home town. Let's see whether I'm going ahead and try this. Might make for an interesting experience. :mrgreen:
