? C-h f last

    last is a compiled Lisp function in `subr.el'.

    (last LIST &optional N)

      Probably introduced at or before Emacs version 1.1.
      This function does not change global state, including the match data.

    Return the last link of LIST.  Its car is the last element.
    If LIST is nil, return nil.
    If N is non-nil, return the Nth-to-last link of LIST.
    If N is bigger than the length of LIST, return LIST.

    Axel> Actually I was looking for something like last element or the element before the last element.

element before last would be

(car (last lst 2))
