I loved the Black Dahlia reading! The way it was written made it really interesting and intriguing to read. When the Sergeant was introduced (“Sergeant Finis Arthur Brown of the Homicide Division, who was going to live with this ugly thing for months and years…”) I was reminded of the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’s “Rebecka case:”
I can't forget it. It's my Rebecka Case. Every policeman has at least one unsolved case. Back then it was old Torstensson. Year after year he kept returning to one - taking out the files - uselessly studying them.
I also thought it was crazy how they started out with twenty investigators, which is already a ton, and ended with over fifty! And when it described how during three work day periods, they wouldn’t even have time to change their shirts. I loved the tiny clues showing just how busy they were with such an open-ended case.
The time stamps towards the end were also really cool, showing just where the victim was at what time and showing how long certain things took, leading up to her “capture” (of course we don’t know if it started out as a capture) and murder. It adds a sort of suspense to the plot.
