Today everybody seems to be a writer of crime novels. In Norway - tradition has it - they read a crime novel at Easter. But what is it that makes a novel, or a film, thrilling? In the forthcoming weeks we will focus on what elements add that extra touch that builds up suspense in a text. We will, of course, copy the masters and learn a few tricks of the trade. Meanwhile we will also increase our range of vocabulary and study texts more closely.
