Tom Rob Smith Tom Rob Smith was born in 1979 to a Swedish mother and an English father and was brought up in London where he still lives. After graduating from Cambridge University in 2001, he completed his studies in Italy, studying creative writing for a year. After these studies, he worked as a scriptwriter.

His first novel, Child 44, published in early 2008 was inspired by the true-life case of Andrei Chikatilo, who committed a series of child murders in Soviet Russia. It was awarded the 2008 Ian Fleming Steel Dagger for best thriller of the year by the Crime Writers' Association, named on the long list for the 2008 Man Booker Prize, nominated for the 2008 Costa First Novel Award (former Whitbread). In July, 2009, he won the Waverton Good Read Award for first novels and the Galaxy Book Award for Best Newcomer with Child 44. It has been translated into 36 languages and in January, 2011, Richard Madeley and Judy Finnegan listed it in their Book Club 100 Books of the decade. The film rights have been optioned by Ridley Scott.

In November 2008, he was nominated for the 2008 Costa First Novel Award (former Whitbread). Smith also wrote London Spy, which will first broadcast on BBC Two in 2015.

Smith lives in Central London.
