DJs Bait in the Box (Gæt en bog) # 2


This quotation comes from the first page of the book so even though it may look like a spoiler, it is not.

"Killing someone feels odd to me and I haven´t quite sorted it through. I´ve already given a statement to the police, which I initialed page by page and then signed. I filled out a similar report for the office files. The language in both documents is neutral, the terminology oblique, and neither says quite enough."

The rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away.

Gæt en bog (2)
Dette citat stammer fra første side i bogen, og er altså ikke en ´spoiler´, selv om det kan se sådan ud.

"At slå nogen ihjel føles underligt, og jeg har ikke rigtig bearbejdet det. Politiet har allerede fået min forklaring, som jeg signerede side for side med mine initialer og til sidst skrev under. Jeg har skrevet en lignende rapport til mit personlige arkiv. Sproget i begge dokumenter er neutralt, ordvalget forblommet, og ingen af dem siger helt nok."

Reglerne:
Hvis du kan genkende citatet, eller hvis du tror du kan gætte hvem forfatteren er, så læg venligst en kommentar. Skriv bare et hint til nye besøgende, lad være med at ødelægge fornøjelsen for andre.

I am stuck on this one. I feel I should know it, but don't. So I will just have to wait patiently for the game to progress!

Ok this seems familiar. I think I've read it. If the title comes to me, I'll be back to post.

Hi!
Haven't got a clue! You asked me if The Body in The Library was Miss Marple. Yes it is, I don't like Hercule Poirot too much myself, but love Miss Marple. She has a really keen mind! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great day!!

Trying again. 1930s English author who wrote under a pseudonym and was filmed by Hitchcock. A wild guess.

Dorte H sagde ...

Not quite as old as that, Norman.
And I think Beth may have an advantage this week.

Ah - I must confess I know this one, which is surprising as I've never been particularly good at strict ordering of anything.

Hi Dorte,

I'm sorry I haven't visited your blog yet! I must have just missed your post in the first week, and I haven't gotten to all the blogs in the second week yet (I'm way behind!). But yes, you're definitely in the project and I am so glad!

Karen, I am sure Norman would like if you gave him just a slight clue of some kind :)

Beth F sagde ...

I think I have it: let's see, how not to give it away? The quotation is from the first book in a series.

BTW: I have an award for you at http://bfishreads.blogspot.com/2009/01/award-lets-be-friends.html

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: Thank you so much for the clue and the wonderful award!

Kim: I really appreciate that I can be a member of your wonderful blogging university. Participating in the Blog Improvement Project really forces one to use one´s imagination :)

Jane sagde ...

No clue, but the book sounds interesting :-)

Mack sagde ...

I don't think this is a give-away clue - "nail scissors"

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

You are right Mack it is not a give-away.

maxine sagde ...

I'm still stuck, though the sentences are familiar. These clues are very good on not giving anything away!

Dorte H sagde ...

Mack: what an elegant hint ;)

Mack sagde ...

Hmmm, comments are trailing off. One last clue from me:

LBD

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

I am a beaten man the Danish question and the American clues?? have defeated me.

Mack sagde ...

The answers to my clues are:
Kinsey Millhone in Sue Grafton's detective novels cuts her own hair with fingernail scissors and owns one dress, her little black dress or LBD. I think these features of Kinsey are mentioned at least once in nearly all the books, at least the ones I read before I stopped for some reason.

Dorte H sagde ...

Thank you Mack for playing along. I think you enjoyed this week´s bait, and I can assure you that I did.
But who know who will be the lucky guys who are ´in the know´ next week??
