This is an auction for THE UNLUCKY LOTTERY by Hakan Nesser.

'Beautifully crafted, the novel once again displays Nesser's trademark compassion and insight into human nature.'
- Sunday Times (UK)

'Nesser was dominating Swedish fiction before Stieg Larsson, and has sold ten million books worldwide. Here he has put together an intriguing plot that keeps twisting right to the very end...The Unlucky Lottery sees Nesser paint a colourful picture of police life and a gripping story of revenge served very cold indeed.'
- Edinburgh Evening News

'Nesser is one of the best of the Nordic Noir writers, unafraid of moral ambiguity and excellent at building a brooding atmosphere.'
- Guardian (UK) review:

"FIVE STARS!!! Four friends have won the lottery. They go out to celebrate, but tell no-one that they have won. Hours later Waldemar Leverkuhn is stabbed to death in his home. Who would want to brutally murder this harmless old man who appears to have no enemies? Then another member of the syndicate goes missing as well as Waldemar Leverkuhn's neighbour. Münster uncovers dark secrets about the Leverkuhn family which ultimately threaten his own life. You may discover the murderer for yourself before the end but then Nesser does provide plenty of clues and his books are as much about character as the plot. He wants the reader to understand why the crime was committed and in doing so leaves us with a sense of moral ambiguity, we know that murder is wrong but... Once again Nesser has produced a compelling read with his trademark literary and humorous style."
