Review: I love Inspector Van Veeteren and this novel is yet another in the series which ticks all the boxes. The characters are so well drawn and Nesser's books are a clever mix of humour and, at times, the macabre. I particularly liked the idea of lottery winners being targetted as gambling is not for me but the way the book builds to a fitting end is just sublime. Readers of Nordic crime and fans of Nesser will not be disappointed by this latest offering - enjoy!

Review: Five elderly men win the lottery, they go out to celebrate then later that night one of them is found dead in his bed with almost 30 stab wounds to his body. Another of the men has gone missing when the police try to question him. I enjoyed this book but when I reflect back on it I'm not sure it was so great. There was a lot of time in the book where I don't feel that anything happened and whilst I appreciated the twists and turns that it did take they didn't really seem to fit in with the rest of the book. In this story, the familiar Chief Inspector Van Veeteren is having time away from the police force but is still consulted from time to time. Its not as dark as some of Nesser's other books. Its certainly not a fast paced book but I enjoyed reading it and seeing some of the characters develop.

    Description: 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 HÃ¥kan 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 second hand bookshop, the case is assigned to Inspector Muenster. But when another member of the lottery group disappears, as well as Leverkuhn's neighbour, Muenster appeals to Van Veeteren for assistance. Soon Muenster 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 not only threaten the clarity of the case - but also his life. The Unlucky Lottery is followed by the seventh book in the series, Hour of the Wolf.
