>DJ´s Bait in the Box # 67

>No, this crime novel is not German, I just thought the Mozart box was quite appropriate anyway. Do you remember this slightly old novel – or perhaps the film? (Hint: it is one of my favourite tv-series).

“He lifted the razor and, with one dramatic sweep, drew it across his throat. It left a bright red line. He stood for a moment frowning down at the blade, unexpectedly scarlet. He swayed forwards then jerked himself upright as if with great effort. The Keeper of the Cakes bustled cheerfully on with the breakfast tray. Salieri took a step to meet her. She stared at him, her mouth shaped to a silent O, then she dropped the tray and caught him as he fell. Then she screamed. Shrieks of pure terror. Over and over again. Whilst the bright blood flowed over her snowy fichu and dove-grey skirt on to the boards beneath.”

The Rules:
If you recognize the quotation, or if you think you are able to guess who wrote it, please post a comment. Just leave a hint, do not spoil the fun by giving too much away. The book will be reviewed on Sunday.
