Munster’s Case by Håkan Nesser

For Waldemar Leverkuhn, a retiree living with his wife in a small unit in an unassuming block of apartments, the day couldn’t begin more auspiciously. He, along with three friends, have won the lottery. It’s a modest but healthy sum of money and the old men toast to their good luck with a celebratory dinner at their usual haunt. The day ends, however, with Leverkuhn drunk, stumbling, belligerent, and eventually dead in his bed, stabbed twenty-eight times in the chest with a carving knife.

After a cursory investigation on Leverkuhn’s few friends and irritable family members that leads to more questions than answers, Leverkuhn’s quiet, weary wife incredibly confesses to her husband’s murder. The case seems to have solved itself, but when the Leverkuhn’s formidable neighbor, Else Van Eck, goes missing and is later discovered in gruesome fashion, Detective Münster and his team find themselves back in the fog and chasing after whisps of clues that indicate that the murders are inextricably linked.

About Simon

Simon is an actor who found his way into audiobook narrating as a side-gig and seems to have made a success of it. With some training as an actor as a child (just a couple of hours a week, but it stuck) and 15 years working inside the BBC (ending up as one of the presenters/newsreaders on BBC Radio 4 in London) he found the ideal combination for an audiobook narrator. Found his way to California two decades ago and never left.
