DVD: Jo Nesbo's Headhunters
Sunday 12 August 2012
This deliriously entertaining, snappily edited Norwegian thriller pits an art thief (Aksel Hennie) against a Dutch businessman (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) with a Rubens in his Oslo flat.
Based (as has since its original release been added to the title) on a Jo Nesbo novel, Headhunters starts as a slick heist movie along the lines of The Thomas Crown Affair, but it spirals into an unhinged, bloody farce that would have Carl Hiaasen and the Coen brothers cheering.
