A colleague strongly urged me to see the film mainly for Synnøve Macody Lund. She turned out to be hot in a Barby doll sort of way. The film however was a little lukewarm. Roger Brown is a headhunter by day and steals rare paintings by night. His partner Ove works for a security firm and deactivates the security system of prospective clients, allowing Roger to slip and make away with the goods. The appearance of Clas Grave (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his Rubens painting is when things start to get dark and bloody as Roger finds himself on the run. Based on a Jo Nesbø novel, it turns the meaning of a headhunter on its head to its more literal definition but fails to leave a lasting impression.
