DJ's Bait in the Box # 19

[This week´s box belongs to Cathy, Kittling: Books]

This novel is not the first in a series.

“… behind him the cellar hatch is open. He did not heed it, he was shuffling, but I could see he was losing his composure and I imagined he might stab me if he didn´t get what he wanted soon. And then I pushed him. There was a gasp when he tumbled backwards down the steep stairs. It hammered and crashed against the steps. As he hit the cement floor, I heard an ugly, dull sound. A feeble rattle, which lasted for a couple of seconds. Then everything was quiet.”

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. The book will be reviewed on Friday as usual.

Gæt en bog # 19
Denne roman er ikke den første i serien.

“… bag ham står kælderlemmen åben. Han ænsede den ikke, han stod og trippede, men jeg så, at han var ved at miste besindelsen, og jeg forestillede mig, at han kunne finde på at stikke mig ned, hvis han ikke snart fik det som han ville. Og så skubbede jeg til ham. Der lød et gisp, da han røg baglæns ned ad den stejle trappe. Det dundrede og bragede mod trinnene. Idet han ramte cementgulvet hørte jeg en hæslig, dump lyd. En svag rallen, der varede et par sekunder. Så blev der stille.”

Norwegian author?

Tim sagde ...

Ahh, I think I know. The queen of crime was originally a poet. The book title includes the word "djevelen".

Tim sagde ...

Oh I like this game ... I've just gone back and looked at some earlier ones.

Dorte H sagde ...

Karen and Tim; How brilliant you are - and that didn´t take long time!

Tim, you can impossibly enjoy it more than I do :)

Bernadette in Australia sagde ...

Again. No idea. :(

Uriah Robinson sagde ...

You were too quick for me Karen and Tim, but my copy is signed by the translator, and I have met the author and have two others signed by her so there. ;o) Apologies I am becoming a bit of a "name-dropper" since my Crime Fest visits. :o)

Dorte H sagde ...

A famous person YOU have met, Norman - are you sure Bernadette thinks that is any help? LOL

Julia Smith sagde ...

Seems like a bit of table-turning in this scene.

I just love that tin!

Dorte H sagde ...

Thank you, Julia.
And you are right; the young man hadn´t quite expected this.

Peter Rozovsky sagde ...

That's quite a box. And I have read the book in question in English translation!

Peter, I hope that was also a good experience.
Most of my boxes have been ´donated´ to me by kind bloggers.

I did enjoy the book in a creepy, disturbing way (and your excerpt was certainly from one of those creepy, disturbing scenes), though I liked it less than the one other book I've read by the same author. My favorite box is a tiny pillbox. I wish I could find some use for it, something that needs to be kept in such a small container.
