With Headhunters, Jo Nesbø has crafted a funny, dark, and twisted caper story worthy of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers. FIRST TIME PUBLISHED IN THE U.S. NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM MAGNOLIA PICTURES.
Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he’s a master of his profession. But one career simply can’t support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife’s fledgling art gallery. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that’s been lost since World War II—and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft. But when he breaks into Greve’s apartment, he finds more than just the painting. And Clas Greve may turn out to be the worst thing that’s ever happened to Roger Brown.

    " Nesbo has written a crime novel without Harry Hole! The plot is convoluted as always but very involving especially when you reach the second half of the book. Do not be discouraged by the opening chapters and the rather long setup. The payoff is fast and furious and a lot of fun. I am hoping that we will see a little more of the large detective who plays only a small role in this story but is another unique Nesbo creation. I understand the movie of this book will be shown in New York City at the end of April 2012. I look forward to seeing how they will dramatize this very complex crime story. Without giving anything away, the plot is built around some very interesting technology and the villain is, as always with Nesbo, a real monster. This is another example of the flawed hero facing overwhelming odds and somehow managing to pull through. Very entertaining and highly recommended whether you are a Nesbo fan or not. "

    " Intricate mystery from Norwegian Jo Nesbo - not just another "next Steig Larson!" Nice thriller mystery without the typical trope of grizzled detective/investigator... I like Nesbo's other works (Harry Hole series,) but this is totally different. I understand a movie is in production. "

    " Good mystery-suspense story without all the tedium of "the girl with..." trilogy. "

    " This is a clever book. I didn't enjoy it as much as the Harry Hole series by the same author which I have recently finished reading. It is a compelling story nonetheless, and has a lot of twists and turns especially at the end. "
