Headhunters

[15]

Norway 2012, 100 mins
Director: Morten Tyldum

Hot on the heels of Stieg Larsson's Millennium adaptations comes this riveting film based on fellow Scandi crime thriller alumnus Jo Nesbø's bestselling novel. The plot centres on Roger Brown (Hennie), a corporate headhunter and world-class art thief.

His latest target is the impeccably debonair Clas Greve (Coster-Waldau), but this time his watertight scheme springs a leak. Upon entering Greve's apartment to get hold of one of the most sought-after paintings in the world, Brown comes across something unexpected and devastating. In a swift role reversal, the hunter becomes the hunted and a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse ensues.

Norwegian director Morten Tyldum manages to do justice to the source while leaving his own distinct mark on this blistering and darkly humoured story.
