Abstract [en]

This thesis provides an analysis of the creation of suspense in the German children’s book Rico, Oskar und die Tieferschatten (The Spaghetti Detectives), written by Andreas Steinhöfel. The study offers extracts from the novel that contribute to creating suspense. It determines how suspense grips the reader and suggests factors that encourage the reader to continue reading a text. The study explores children’s literature as well as different variations of crime stories, by using theories concerning the first-person narrator and concentration on certain themes in the text; for example on plot and aim, as well as emotions and secrets. One particular variety of suspense is also discussed, the one that focuses on the overall mystery, Macro-suspense. The last chapter provides a discussion on the first person narrator’s impact on the creation of suspense. Further, it determines that the novel above all engages in the concentration of emotions and the concentrations of secrets.
