Summary: It is autumn 1981 when the inconceivable comes to Blackeberg, a suburb in Sweden. The body of a teenage boy is found, emptied of blood, the murder rumored to be part of a ritual killing. Twelve-year-old Oskar is personally hoping that revenge has come at long last---revenge for the bullying he endures at school, day after day.But the murder is not the most important thing on his mind. A new girl has moved in next door---a girl who has never seen a Rubik’s Cube before, but who can solve it at once. There is something wrong with her, though, something odd. And she only comes out at night. . . .(Summary is thanks to amazon.)
Mythoughts which contain spoilers... I really liked the USA verison of this movie.. it was, simple put, brilliant.
I really enjoyed the book as well. I don't read 480 pages in three days if I don't like the book. But throught out reading the book you learn that Eli who was pretented in the first 300 and some odd pages to be a girl is really a boy! I'm not sure what the piont was of changing the character gender? Maybe I missed that whole point...? Either way it annoyed me throughtout the rest of the book.
