However, Roger’s ambition soon gets the better of him as he is lured into a dangerous game of cat and mouse when he goes after the biggest heist of his life, only to discover his victim is also a skilled headhunter in the most literal sense.
What’s particularly pleasing about Headhunters is the work it puts in to successfully put the basics in place. The narrative, after all, is strong, but it’s the character work that pays dividends. Everyone is painted to some degree in shades of grey, and it helps make the film itself a lot more unpredictable than your typical Hollywood thriller. A special mention too for the performance of Aksel Hennie in the lead role, whose uneasy shifts of tone make him utterly compelling.
The key addition to the disc release of the film is a special feature that digs into the making of Headhunters. It runs just over 20 minutes, and is enjoyable enough to watch. You get the trailer bundled in there too. The key attraction remains, though, a thumping good thriller, that puts the gimmicks aside in favour of telling a twisting story exceptionally well. --Jon Foster

Met this actor Aksel Hennie. Very smart and talented man. Great film. Preferred even to the book.
Sorry Jo Nesbo. Love all your books though.
