Based on Jo Nesbo's bestselling book of the same name, Morten Tyldum's Headhunters follows Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie of MAX MANUS), Norway's most successful headhunter. He's also Norway's top con artist, using his job to slyly recruit people he plans on stealing from. He's charming but suffers from what’s called "Little Man Syndrome." His wife Diana (an impressive first performance from Synnøve Macody Lund) is tall and beautiful. To make up for those lost inches, he steals from people and buys her things he can't afford, putting himself deeper in debt than even M.C. Hammer could imagine. So, Roger goes for one final hit - the one that will cure all of his financial woes. That last job is a painting worth millions, and it’s in the hands of Clas Greve (Nikolaj Cster-Waldau of "A Game of Thrones"), a former mercenary with excellent hunting skills.

Headhunters eventually turns into a brutally satisfying game of cat and mouse. Throughout the chase, our characters discover the meanings of love, deceit, faith and revenge. There are virtually no likable characters in Headhunters, and that's what really makes it work - you find yourself rooting for the bad guy.
