I like this cover art a heck of a lot better than I liked the other one:
Click on it for an ultra-high res version.
...the story derives a lot of its appeal from its sense of despair and a darkness in which the love of Eli and Oskar seems to shine with a strange and disturbing light.

This is good. Makes me want to read the book. I take it "Harbour" is the official title now? I like that too, I think it is as close to the original ambiguity you can get.
For the heart life is simple. It beats as long as it can.

So we finally have a release date in Aus for it...funny so close to the release of Let Me In as well
I was already planning on re reading Let the Right One In before the release of Let Me In, but now I know that this is finally coming out and so close to Let Me In, I think I know what I will be reading instead of LTROI again

This is a cover for the Russian language edition of "Harbour". Just as it was the case with "LTROI", "Harbour's" cover misses the point just a bit...
Instead of attempting to depict menace the artwork looks more like something you find on the walls of Red Lobster or some dusty Bed and Breakfast.
It's a far cry from beautiful Ordfront cover design.

With a few exceptions, I have always thought that the covers of JAL's books could use some upgrades. Too bad he doesn't have more direct control over that--I'd love to see a cover coming straight out of his mind.
