Norwegian Roger Brown (Hennie) works as a headhunter, scouting potential applicants for executive jobs, but also executes high- end art robberies. Danish Clas Greve (Coster-Waldau) has the qualifications for a post Brown needs to fill and has just inherited a Rubens, so Brown targets him — only to discover Greve is a different type of headhunter.
A slick thriller which takes place in a moral vacuum. It’s fascinating rather than exciting, but makes for chilly thrills with two strong, charismatic lead performances, a great deal of style and amusingly repulsive, ruthless twists.
