Munster's Case Summary
For Waldemar Leverkuhn the day could not have begun more auspiciously. He and three of his friends, all retirees, have just won the lottery. Its a modest sum when split four ways - certainly not enough to lift Waldemar out of the plain apartment he shares with his quiet, weary wife - but its enough for the old men to toast their good luck with a blowout at their favorite bar. The celebration ends, however, with Waldemar drunk, stumbling, belligerent, and eventually dead in his own bed, stabbed twenty-eight times in the chest with a carving knife.
