“I found my way to street level and into what optimists call 'fresh air”

“Vakten ga tydelig inntrykk av at han trodde damemennesket hadde hallusinasjoner eller også hadde forlest seg på Agatha Christie, men man visste jo aldri.”
Gunnar Staalesen, Rygg i rand, to i spann

“I mitt fag finnes det to muligheter når du skal oppsøke folk. Du kan ringe på forhånd, si hvem du er, og etter all sannsynlighet bli avvist allerede da. Eller du kan oppsøke dem personlig, hjemme eller på jobb. Da er det straks litt vanskeligere for dem å si nei.”
Gunnar Staalesen, Som i et Speil
