"So you're quite shook up about this then?" asked the detective.
"And what did you think of that?" inquired the detective.
"Where were you when they died?" questioned the detective.
Okay, I need help with the dialogue.
Is it correct the way it is thanks.
If not, how would I change it.

All of those are quite appropriate. However when writing dialogue, it is not always necessary to say "asked the detective." If there are only two speakers , you can just indent each time the speaker changes. If you wish to change the mood of the person talking you can use verbs like "interrupted", "menaced", "soothed", etc.
