John Ajvide Lindqvist (born December 2, 1968) currently resides in Sweden, and is mainly known for writing the book "Let the Right One In". He grew up in Blackeberg, a suburb in Stockholm, and the location used for his book "Let the Right One In". A few years after "Let the Right One In" was released to the public, director Tomas Alfredson and casting created a movie based off of the best selling Swedish novel in 2008. John helped write the screenplay for the film. Then another film adaptation of John's novel was released in 2010 titled "Let Me In", though John did not help with the screenplay for this film. John, before writing, was a magician and a stand up comedian. He's a huge fan of Morrissey (solo musician, and singer of The Smiths), and was influenced by his song "Let the Right One Slp In" to title his book. A quote from a Morrissey song can be seen near the beginning of the book as well. Morrissey's music has also influenced his writing for his book titled "Harbor".
