Roger Brown has it all. He's the country's most successful headhunter. He has a beautiful wife and a magnificent house. And to maintain this lifestyle, he's also a highly accomplished art thief. At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position with one of Roger's high-profile clients, he is also in possession of 'The Calydonian Boar Hunt' by Rubens, one of the most sought-after paintings in the world. Roger sees his chance to be rich beyond his wildest dreams and starts planning his boldest heist yet. But soon, he runs into trouble - and this time money is the least of his worries...

Standard print ed. originally published : London : Harvill Secker, 2011.

Library Journal Review

Arriving hard on the heels of Nesbo's Inspector Harry Hole thriller The Snowman, this stand-alone gives us a brilliant array of variously flawed human beings involved in a tale of intricate plotting, excellent characterization, made-for-the-movies effects and images, and a multifaceted surprise ending. Corporate headhunter Roger Brown, bedeviled by guilt over false steps in his relationship with his art dealer wife, plots to recommend one of her gallery's clients for a high-profile executive position. The question soon becomes who is plotting against whom and exactly how far will he go to achieve his ends? Verdict Combining the gripping worlds of international corporate intrigue, questionable state-supported covert actions, art theft, and a full expression of the various meanings of "head hunter," this is a true thriller from start to finish. Sure to be enjoyed by devotees of Stieg Larsson, Henning Mankell, and even the post-Cold War oeuvre of John le Carre.-David Clendinning, West Virginia State Univ., Institute (c) Copyright 2011.
