Magnus Nordin

Magnus Nordin, born in 1963, writes books that ensure horror, myth and legends set in ordinary environments. He lives with his family just outside of central Stockholm, and works as a teacher. Nordin says that myth and the supernatural have always fascinated him. Agatha Christie and old horror movies from 40ies have served as inspiration, “nothing beats a good horror story” says Nordin but also points that the best and most effective horror stories are set in ordinary environments that we can recognize.
