Headhunters by Jon Nesbø is the first of his novels to be filmed and will be released in Ireland and the UK on 6 April.
Roger Brown seems to have it all. An exceedingly beautiful wife, a luxurious villa and a job as a successful corporate headhunter. He is the best in the business and he knows it.
But one career is not enough to fund Brown’s extravagant lifestyle and he becomes embroiled in high profile theft on the side, relieving his wealthy new recruits of their valuable artwork.
So when Brown discovers his latest candidate, the accomplished and handsome Clas Greve owns one of the most sought after paintings in the world, he sees a way out of his financial problems for good and embarks on his most dangerous heist yet.
But nothing could prepare Brown for what he finds in Greve’s apartment and what follows is a dark and relentless game of cat and mouse, as the hunter becomes the hunted.
Based on Jo Nesbo’s bestselling crime thriller, HEADHUNTERS is the author’s first novel to be adapted for the big screen.
Directed by MORTEN TYLDUM (WHAT HAPPENED TO MONDAY, BUDDY) and produced by YELLOW BIRD, the production company behind the phenomenally successful MILLENNIUM trilogy and WALLANDER, HEADHUNTERS also stars NIKOLAJ COSTER-WALDAU (GAME OF THRONES, MAMA, OBLIVION), SYNNOVE MACODY LUND and JULIE OLGAARD (THE KILLING.)
In cinemas across Dublin on Friday 6 April.
