Previously resistant to screen adaptations of his bestselling Inspector Harry Hole series, writer Jo Nesbø finally granted permission to film his standalone thriller Headhunters. For Roger Brown, supplementing his income from corporate recruitment with a side helping of art thievery, the appearance of charming mark Clas Greve proves too good to resist. But Brown drastically underestimates Greve’s ability to hold a grudge. The film flips through a variety of tense set pieces, loops of double crosses, and inventive violence. A must-see for fans of Scandi-drama and of blackest, deadpan humour Fargo-style.
