Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
With "Headhunters," Jo Nesbo 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.

Review by Library Journal (2011-09-23)

Arriving hard on the heels of Nesbo's Inspector Harry Hole thriller The Snowman, this stand-alone gives us a brilliant array of variously flawed human beings involved in a tale of intricate plotting, excellent characterization, made-for-the-movies effects and images, and a multifaceted surprise ending. Corporate headhunter Roger Brown, bedeviled by guilt over false steps in his relationship with his art dealer wife, plots to recommend one of her gallery's clients for a high-profile executive position.

The question soon becomes who is plotting against whom and exactly how far will he go to achieve his ends? Verdict Combining the gripping worlds of international corporate intrigue, questionable state-supported covert actions, art theft, and a full expression of the various meanings of "head hunter", this is a true thriller from start to finish. Sure to be enjoyed by devotees of Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, and even the post-Cold War oeuvre of John le Carre.
