»[laughs] I teach a class at the University of Tel Aviv about the history of the detective novel. On the first day, I warn the students that they should be aware that to every student who takes this class strange things happen. I’ve had students that things were stolen from them during class. You know, very, very strange things. It is part of the detective’s world. The detective — one of the things that he teaches us is to be paranoid. The detective tells us: ‚Look around you. Everyone around you is a suspect.’«
