Let the Right One In swept across Sweden and claimed American audiences. With its deadly protagonists and dark view on society John Ajvide Lindqvist’s premiere novel is original with a classic Gothic taste. Lindqvist was born in Stockholm and before becoming an author preformed both as a standup comedian and street magician, as well as working as a screen play writer for Swedish television and Drama. He had a large hand with bringing Låt den rätte komma in (Let the Right One In) to screen in Sweden. He is also a devoted Morrissey fan; the novel’s name taken from the song Let the Right One Slip In.
