Publisher's Summary

A Swedish crime writer as thrilling as Mankell, a detective as compelling as Wallander....

Chief Inspector Van Veeteren delves into a dark family mystery in the sixth book in Håkan Nesser's Van Veeteren series,The Unlucky Lottery.

Four friends celebrate winning the lottery. Just hours later, one of them - Waldemar Leverkuhn - is found in his home, stabbed to death.

With Chief Inspector Van Veeteren on sabbatical, working in a secondhand bookshop, the case is assigned to Inspector Münster. But when another member of the lottery group disappears as well as Leverkuhn's neighbour, Münster appeals to Van Veeteren for assistance.

Soon Münster will find himself interviewing the Leverkuhn family, including the eldest - Irene, a resident of a psychiatric clinic. And as he delves deeper into the family's history, he will discover dark secrets and startling twists which threaten not only the clarity of the case but also his life....

The Unlucky Lottery is followed by the seventh book in the series, The Hour of the Wolf.

More of Hakan Nesser

Captivating storyteller!
This is the second book of this writer I have read. In the first I guessed the killer half way through.
This one is Suspenseful right to the very end!
His psychological analysis in both books very good.
But the same mixture of missing bodies, one cut to pieces and homosexuality explained as environmental!
