Re: Madison Taylor Baez Will Play a Young Vampire in Showtime’s LET THE RIGHT ONE IN Series

This is LTROI in name only, lifting the basic plot of lonely vampire trapped in a 12 year old body meets lonely bullied 12 year old boy, and then mash up the plot. They may as well do it as an anthology series. At least this version they didn't attempt to age it up to another Twilight clone like th...

Re: Divine intervention

Had I been asked where, if anywhere, a bit of 'divine intervention' had been included in one of JAL's works, I would have suggested it there was in how the dad and daughter escape back to our world in Harbor .

Divine intervention

Recently decided to rewatch one of JAL's more obscure interviews, a conversation he had with Dan-Erik Sahlberg at the 2016 literature festival in Sigtuna . This is one of several interviews Sahlberg has conducted with JAL, and since the former is a devout Christian, a large portion of the interviews...

Re: Have You Infected a Friend?

I originally discovered and fell in love with the novel—followed by the film, LTODD, and the rest of JAL's bibliography—when I chose to read it for Swedish class in the gymnasium (kind of a long story that I won't get into here). I subsequently discussed them a lot with my Swedish teacher and eventu...

About that photo... I suppose this is a typical Swedish pose meaning, um, I"M DONE , yes? Are there other poses we should be aware of? :)

New JAL novel: Verkligheten

Today John announced that he'd finished writing a new short novel titled Verkligheten (meaning "Reality"). He first mentioned it in an interview in the literature talk show Babel on March 26 (at the 12:00 mark): I've now put [both The Value and The Pigs ] aside because I've started writing a book ca...

Re: New TV adaptation ordered by Showtime

Not entirely sure how I feel about introducing a more medical or scientific side to the story, but it sounds like it could be interesting.

Naomi is the combination of Oskar’s mother and policeman Staffan?
Staffan and/or Gunnar Holmberg. Maybe a bit of Karin from LTODD as well.
