The Independent Culture

Diminutive, unprepossessing Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie, above) is a corporate headhunter by day, and an art thief by night.

He lives in a fabulously wealthy home (it rotates) with his stunning wife. However, Brown's perfect life caves in when he foolishly steals from a candidate (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) he has lined up for a top job. The rather unpleasant Brown (though oddly, you root for him all the way) is then pursued mercilessly across country in true Hitchcock style. This is a sensationally entertaining adaptation of Jo Nesbo's thriller.
