Head hunting

Headhunters by Jo Nesbo

Roger Brown has it all. He’s the country’s most successful headhunter. He has a beautiful wife and a magnificent house. And to maintain this lifestyle, he’s also a highly accomplished art thief. At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position with one of Roger’s high-profile clients, he is also in possession of ‘The Calydonian Boar Hunt’ by Rubens, one of the most sought-after paintings in the world.Roger sees his chance to be rich beyond his wildest dreams and starts planning his boldest heist yet. But soon, he runs into trouble – and this time money is the least of his worries…

I have yet to see the movie (which has had some excellent reviews) but have to say the book is pretty good. It’s not quite in the league of Nesbo’s Harry Hole series but a pacy and entertaining yarn nevertheless with some surprising twists and turns.
