The Unlucky Lottery

After the thick, superficial novel I last read, it was great to dive into a great mystery by Hakan Nesser. The Unlucky Lottery follows a group of old friends who finally hit it big on the lottery on their celebratory evening. The next morning, one of the friends is dead, another missing.

With Chief Inspector VanVeeteren still on sabbatical and only offering occasional advice, Inspector Munson must work the case with his team with very little clues why one of the men was stabbed repeatedly and excessively to death in his own bed. When his wife pleads guilty, the pieces seem almost but not quite together and Munson keeps looking for further confirmation of the murderer.

As always, this Scandanavian mystery has a slow, steady pace with several turns along the way. I enjoyed the unveiling of the murderer but the inspector and the last vignette of peace.
