About this deal

The over-intricate overlap of conspiracies and the number of coincidences mean that this isn't a particularly believable thriller; still, the big puzzle picture (and how it works out) is satisfying -- and a lot of the action is fun. Throw in the GPS technology he's familiar with from his previous job and he is a very well-equipped hunter. Headhunters has everything that makes a good crime novel: Strange murders, inventive disappearing acts and above all brilliant fraud for all you’re worth.”— Bogrummet (Denmark)

Roger is devoted to his wife, too -- relatively faithful (with one brief slip), and willing to do anything to make her happy, including paying for a lifestyle -- fancy house, fancy art gallery for Diana to run -- that is way beyond his pay grade. Irresistibly addictive…. This is reading as you experienced it in childhood, without any gap between eye and mind, but with the added pleasures that adult plots and adult characters can bring…. Brilliantly conceived, carefully worked out, and complicatedly satisfying.”— SlateNesbo takes a break from his Harry Hole detective series . . . with this stellar stand-alone caper.. . . . The dizzying reversals of fortune and situations that would be over-the-top in lesser hands make for a delightful roller-coaster ride. Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard fans will be delighted."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review) Although the premise of a main character who steals famous works of art on the side contains a great deal of originality, it takes a deft hand to keep "Headhunters" so exciting. Director Morten Tyldum keeps what on paper is really a rather outlandish premise feeling real and tense. Why would a company with "a billion dollar deal" get only his CEO and a strangely weak woman to handle its murder business? -How can this CEO work as a special ops commando up until a few years ago? -Why would he investigate a silly headhunter for some position? -Why would he sleep with the headhunters wife? -Why and how would he learn that the headhunter is an art thief? -Why would he lure him into his apartment to steal a painting (fake or not)? -Why would he try to poison or kill the headhunter? -Why does the headhunter art thief choose his own garage to transfer the painting to his partner? -...

Of course, this is rubbish, but when I propose a candidate for a job I don’t do it because the person in question is the best but because he is the one the client will employ. I provide them with a head that is good enough, placed on the body they want. They are not qualified to judge the first; they can see the second with their own eyes. (c)Malo sam se umorio od kompleksnijih (znanstveno fantastičnih) romana, pa sam u posljednjem pohodu u knjižnicu birao što tanje knjige. A na ovaj roman Joa Nesbøa me nagovorio Goran sa svojim zabavnim osvrtom. It doesn't help that Headhunters is translated into a no-person's language that shows evidence of academic (rather than life) experience on the translator's part. (...) Headhunters is the kind of book that gives trash a bad name. Not least because it's ponderous enough to portend itself as something more." - Peter Craven, The Age Q: But not even a saint could scream like Diana. Diana’s scream... It was a lament and an enduring moan, a tone that merely rose and fell, like a model aeroplane. So piercing that after the first act of love I had woken up with a ringing in my ears, and after three weeks of lovemaking I thought I could detect the first symptoms of tinnitus; .... (c) Romantic, huh? Written under the pseudonym of Tom Johansen, Blood on Snow revolves around Olav Johansen, a cold-blooded killer with a heart of gold. Olav is a fixer for a high-profile crime kingpin in 1970s Oslo. He easily takes care of anyone who causes trouble for his boss. But he is more complicated than he seems. Olav’s latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, but it may become his greatest mistake.
