It is often stated that director Fritz Lang based Hans Beckert (played by Peter Lorre) on real life rapist and murderer Peter Krten, dubbed "The Vampire of Dusseldorf". Whether or not this is true is unconfirmed.

Strange, but true. Comic artist Jon J. Muth has created a graphic novel based on M and titled M (2008). The graphic novel also includes a copy of the film.
