EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW WITH JOHN AJVIDE LINDQVIST (Best-selling author: Let The Right One In, Harbour, Little Star, Let the Old Dreams Die…)
Regarded as ‘the Swedish Stephen King’, Lindqvist’s first novel, Let the Right One In, considered the best modern vampire novel, also generated two hugely successful films, the Swedish of the same title, for which he also wrote the screenplay, and its U.S. adaptation: Let Me In.
After the vampiric Let the Right One In, it was the turn for the zombie subject, but Handling the Undead was unlike any other novel on this familiar monster. The author, once again, surprised us with his original and intelligent perspective in a story in which spirituality, metaphysics and social discussion are intertwined with his art for inducing heart-pounding dread.
His latest novels Harbour, Little Star and the short-stories collection, where we get to find out what happened to the protagonists of Let The Right One in, and titled Let The Old Dreams Die, are yet more examples of his supreme mastery at the horror/suspense genre.
