Jo Nesbø’s Headhunters will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital download from 13 August 2012.
Starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Black Hawk Down) from HBO’s epic series Game of Thrones, Aksel Hennie (Max Manus: Man of War, Age of Heroes) and Julie R. Ølgaard (The Killing), the hard-hitting thriller is the highest grossing foreign-language film of 2012.
Roger Brown (Hennie) seems to have it all, an exceedingly beautiful wife and a luxurious villa and is a high flying, successful corporate headhunter. He’s 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 (Coster-Waldau) 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.
