It is known that in a complete graph with independent exponential edge weights the distance between two fixed vertices is asymptotically almost surely (a.a.s.) log n/n. We look at the cost X_k of kth minimal path between two fixed vertices, defined as the cheapest path in G after having deleted the previous k-1 minimal paths. We show that for k = o(n^{1/3}), X_k is a.a.s. 2k/n + \log n / n. We then indicate how this can be further improved. The talk is based on joint papers with P.~Balister, B.~Mezei and G.~Sorkin.
