Abstract [en]

In todays´s Swedish society you need to have good reading skills. Every day life contains many occasions when you have to read and understand what it is you are reading. This can be anything from reading the newspaper to paying a bill. The Swedish curriculum states that all pupils should be given the opportunity to develop strategies so that they will be able to create their own texts and to understand other people´s texts. One way to achieve these goals is to allow pupils to read various texts, ranging from factual texts to fiction. Fiction contains many different genres, and one of the genres that appeal to many children is the detective story. This genre contains various suspence-creating elements that attract the reader to read further, which helps pupils to develop their reading strategies. Therefore, this study describes a text- and image-analysis of two books in a book series named The Arkeolog Sleuths. The study focuses on suspence and on how suspence can be created in a book written for children. The scientific theoretical perspective that this study is based on is Hermeneutics and the hermeneutic circle which means that you starts to examine the entirety, goes into the details and then out to the whole again. The scientific method being used is Narratology that answers the questions of what is told, and how it is told. The results of the analysis shows that the child detective story contains several elements that creates suspence in a text. Some of these suspence-creating elements are highlighted as well as the interaction between text and illustration to enhance these.
