A Norwegian crime thriller based on a Jo Nesbø book about a headhunter with ambitions.

Various interesting productions have come from Scandinavia over the last decade or so, but I don’t think this is one of them… The storyline is fairly silly, the characters shallow, and the missed forensic clues must be everywhere… Nevertheless it is a pretty enjoyable watch, but a thriller it is not. It is almost slapstick.

Should you watch it? Maybe if you are a Nesbø fan, but approach it as a dark comedy rather than a quality crime movie.
