Author Magnus Nordin visits lessons in Swedish
Magnus Nordin, born in 1963, writes books about 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 the 40's 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.
During the first week of school Magnus Nordin met with all our students in year 7 and 8, to talk about the books they had read. Magnus Nordin's books hook struggling readers, both boys and girls, and we are happy to work the books and met the author behind them.
