The curious incident of the dog in the night-time – Mark Haddon
Capitulo 1 del libro
It was 1:12 a.m. when Father arrived at the police station. I did not see him
until 1:28 a.m. but I knew he was there because I could hear him.
He was shouting, ‘I want to see my son,’ and ‘Why the hell is he locked
up?’ and, ‘Of course I’m bloody angry.’
Then I heard a policeman telling him to calm down. Then I heard nothing
for a long while.
At 1:28 a.m. a policeman opened the door of the cell and told me that
there was someone to see me.
I stepped outside. Father was standing in the corridor. He held up his right
hand and spread his fingers out in a fan. I held up my left hand and spread my
fingers out in a fan and we made our fingers and thumbs touch each other.
We do this because sometimes Father wants to give me a hug, but I do not
like hugging people, so we do this instead, and it means that he loves me.
Then the policeman told us to follow him down the corridor to another
room. In the room was a table and three chairs. He told us to sit down on the
far side of the table and he sat down on the other side. There was a tape
recorder on the table and I asked whether I was going to be interviewed and
he was going to record the interview.
He said, ‘I don’t think there will be any need for that.’
He was an inspector. I could tell because he wasn’t wearing a uniform.
He also had a very hairy nose. It looked as if there were two very small mice
hiding in his nostrils.
He said, ‘I have spoken to your father and he says that you didn’t mean to
hit the policeman.’
I didn’t say anything because this wasn’t a question.
He said, ‘Did you mean to hit the policeman?’
I said, ‘Yes.’
He squeezed his face and said, ‘But you didn’t mean to hurt the
I thought about this and said, ‘No. I didn’t mean to hurt the policeman. I
just wanted him to stop touching me.’
Then he said, ‘You know that it is wrong to hit a policeman, don’t you?’
I said, ‘I do.’
He was quiet for a few seconds, then he asked, ‘Did you kill the dog,
I said, ‘I didn’t kill the dog.’
He said, ‘Do you know that it is wrong to lie to a policeman and that you
can get into a very great deal of trouble if you do?’
I said, ‘Yes.’
He said, ‘So, do you know who killed the dog?’
I said, ‘No.’
He said, ‘Are you telling the truth?’
I said, ‘Yes. I always tell the truth.’
And he said, ‘Right. I am going to give you a caution.’
I asked, ‘Is that going to be on a piece of paper like a certificate I can
