The Fifth Jack

Andreas Boe's site for commenting his writing

The Fifth Jack is the sixth book in the Nerdology series, but it has been written in a way which makes it possible for newcomers to read it.

A mysterious masked man dressed like the jack of spades sneaks around behind the scenery of this story. Who is he, and what does he want?

Mikko isn't even aware of the strange activities going on. He struggles to get through his day; with work, university studies and his and Sharon's upcoming marriage to think of.

He gets new number puzzles from the mysterious M, but what are her real motives for giving them to him? Does she do it just for fun, or does she have a job offer waiting for him?

Here are three hard core questions for people who have already read the book.


What tree is the Jack of Spades referring to in the prolog?


What's with the numbers on the pocket watch?


How many milligrams does the coins weigh on average?

Bonus questions:

Who could the pocket watch have belonged to?

What artist comes to mind when watching the title page painting?
