Review

"A relentless and breakneck tale that keeps the reader hungrily turning the pages for more" (Big Issue)

"A gripping read... I got lost in this book and hours skipped by as the chapters got shorter, more tense and the pace quickened to an almost unbearable crescendo... A thoroughly satisfying read" (Irish Independent)

"Nesbo is a master storyteller, gripping the reader from the first page and ratcheting up the suspense in a thrilling finale with several satisfying twists. Any readers coming to Nesbo for the first time will find this a cracking, if slightly far-fetched read while his fans will find plenty to entertain them" (Sunday Express)

"With echoes of The Thomas Crown Affair, spectacular storytelling and a beautifully judged super-twist, it confirms Nesbo's place at the pinnacle of thriller writers and, inevitably, a film version will be with us next year. It's that good" (Geoffrey Wansell Daily Mail)

"This book is one you absolutely have to read... The outrageous storytelling is so stimulating, it makes James Ellroy look like a boy scout and Bret Easton Ellis like a sunday school boy" (Helsingin Sanomat (Finland))

LIE

Roger Brown has it all: money, brains and a beautiful wife. And if his job as a headhunter ever gets dull, he has his sideline as an art thief to keep him busy.

STEAL

At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position that Brown is recruiting for; he is also in possession of one of the most sought-after paintings in modern art history.

MURDER?

Roger sees his chance to become rich beyond his wildest dreams, and starts planning his biggest theft ever. But he soon runs into trouble - and it's not long before the hunter becomes the hunted...

'Nesbo is a master storyteller, gripping the reader from the first page and ratcheting up the suspense in a thrilling finale with several satisfying twists' Sunday Express

'The cinematic quality of Headhunters makes it a particularly invigorating read' Independent

All proceeds from Headhunters - including the film adaptation - go directly to the Harry Hole Foundation: a charity set up to reduce illiteracy among children in the third world

About the Author

Jo Nesbo is a musician, songwriter, economist and author. His first crime novel featuring Harry Hole was published in Norway in 1997 and was an instant hit, winning the Glass Key Award for best Nordic crime novel (an accolade shared with Peter Høeg, Henning Mankell and Stieg Larsson). The Leopard, the sixth of Nesbo's novels to be translated into English, went straight to the top of the bestseller charts in its first week of publication. www.jonesbo.co.uk.
