“Roger Høibakk flirte og tenkte i det stille at han var heldig som hadde holdt seg unna familielivet. I kriminallitteraturen hadde aldri, eller nesten aldri, etterforskere familie, i alle fall ikke unger. Hverken i bøkene til Kim Småge, Gunnar Staalesen eller Anne Holt.”
Unni Lindell, Slangebæreren
