Jo Nesbo's Headhunters [DVD]

The rich work of Jo Nesbo has enthralled readers of his novels across the world, and the big screen adaptation of Headhunters proves equally compelling. It tells the story of the headhunter of the story’s title, a man called Roger Brown, who’s adept at finding the right person for the right job. But that’s not all he does: he’s also, in his spare time, something of an expert art thief, and that proves the catalyst for an involving, well-made, twisty thriller, one with a good number of surprises up its proverbial sleeve.

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
