Morten Tyldum’s highly entertaining Norwegian action thriller does have a couple of scenes that you will need to take with a pinch of salt. If you don’t mind that, then you’re in for a treat.
With a cool script based on Jo Nesbø’s novel of the same name, and a great cast which includes Aksel Hennie, Synnøve Macody Lund and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Headhunters is a lot of fun. It is also a slightly unusual film in that the protagonist we root for is actually more of an antihero.
You can find more information on this Norwegian-language movie on Wikipedia and IMDb.
