You living saint of the Stranglers, your nightwalking companion now hunts you, too.
So he bid them give up their nightwalking, and come out and agitate in the daylight. '
-- Jessica Relay, 23, Swampscott; common nightwalking.
It's a credit to Thomas Alfredson et al that a fair number of LET THE RIGHT ONE IN's more disturbing bits take place in broad daylight and of course daylight becomes increasingly problematic as the story progresses, not only for the nightwalking Eli but for a neighbor (Ika Nord, formerly the spritely hostess of the Swedish kiddie shoe Ika i rutan, the theme song for which comes perilously close to Silver Shamrock insidiousness) who receives the vampire's kiss but does not die; this rum bit of luck dooms the woman to prey (or attempt to) on her own circle of friends, a rather sad inner circle of 40-somethings whose boozy camaraderie reeks of dreams deferred and promise unfulfilled, like characters ported over from Barbara Alpert's FREE RADICALS (Böse Zellen, 2004) .
