Please ignore my first reply, I thought the thread was directed at me (before the thread title change.)

I read Harbour this year. It was pretty good actually. I've seen the movie Let the Right One In, but haven't read it yet.

I really liked the book LTROI. I thought the film was good too, but I've only watched the original, not the remake.

I was looking at Harbour just a moment ago. I might have to get it.

I hope to start Little Star in the next few days.

I like how Lindqvist uses tragic figures in his books, IMO making them very believable characters. Especially David in Handling The Undead.

Read Let The Right One In; really enjoyed it.

Really liked the Swedish and American film also.

You're right about tragic figures. The main character in Harbour is pretty damn tragic. His landscape/setting was quite bleak too, but I love bleak settings in books.

Me too! I'll definitely check it out.

O/T on bleak settings, have you read Dark Matter by Michelle Paver? Very bleak setting and a book I quite enjoyed.

I read two or three of John Ajvide Lindqvist's books and I thought the first one was really good and the best of them.
