Headhunters stars the talented Aksel Hennie (Max Manus) as Roger, a charming scoundrel and Norway’s most accomplished headhunter. Roger is living a life of luxury well beyond his means, and stealing art to subsidize his expensive lifestyle. When his beautiful gallery owner wife introduces him to a former mercenary in the possession of an extremely valuable painting, he decides to risk it all to get his hands on it, and in doing so discovers something which makes him a hunted man. Headhunters is based on Jo Nesbø‘s best-selling thriller from 2008. — © Magnolia

92% Tomatometer – Review on Rotten Tomatoes
‘Grisly, twisty, and darkly comic, Headhunters is an exhilaratingly oddball take on familiar thriller elements.’

Review by Philip French, The Observer, Sunday 8 April 2012

‘Jo Nesbø‘s novel has been expertly transformed into a cool, brutal, deeply Scandinavian thriller. Although inevitably indebted to American models, Headhunters is firmly rooted in the Scandinavian experience, and it moves with the speed of a demented lemming heading for the cliff-edge of a fjord. ’
