How can i make a fingerprint reader to unlock a door? (Preferably under £20)?

   I'm wanting to make a fingerprint scanner to go on a hidden door (made into a bookcase), the hiding of the scanner isn't a factor i'm worrying about at the moment - But i can't afford to pay out like £50 just for a scanner!
Or if you can think of any alternatives to this, that would be great too! (:

.  Apparently you are in the UK so YMMV, but Google tells me that the devices can be had for as little as $20 (~£14) online. You should be able to find a similar deal on your side of The Pond.

Oh, But the used ones i've found start at £5, which is pretty good :D Next, I need to figure out how i'm gunna turn my door into a bookshelf. (it's right in a damn corner! )
