Jo Nesbø is the most successful Norwegian writer of all time – he is as ubiquitous a name in crime-writing circles as Lee Child or Stieg Larsson. Despite his popularity, Headhunters marks the first time one of Nesbø’s books has been adapted for the big screen. A glossy but gritty and very modern story, it centers on Roger, the country’s most successful headhunter. He seems to have it all, but Roger is anxiously living beyond his means and running art scams on the side to keep solvent. When his wife introduces him to the handsome and urbane Clas Greve, this seems fortuitous indeed, for Greve is not only the perfect candidate for a recent position Roger is hoping to fill, he also owns a very valuable painting. Needless to say, things don't go quite according to plan... Director Morten Tyldum contrasts a cool aesthetic with pacy plot twists, bursts of stomach-churning encounters and the odd dash of mordant humor, making for an irresistible combination and an assured and intelligent rollercoaster of a movie.
