Publisher's Summary

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.

I'm Hooked

I started reading Jo Nesbø a few months ago and cannot get enough. Headhunters is a wonderful story, full of intrigue, action, horror and humour. Nesbø has a wonderful way with words and descriptions that often make me smile at his ingenuity.

Sean Barrett is magnificent. The best Narrator I've had the pleasure to listen to. Accents, languages, gender, emotion all seem to flow effortlessly (I'm sure it is actually VERY hard work). He takes you inside in a way that the narration actually disappears as you are pulled into the plot, characters, locations . . . the story.

Headhunters, for me, was a nice break from Harry Hole. But it fed my desire to read more by this gifted author.

Nesbo's black humour reigns

What made the experience of listening to Headhunters the most enjoyable?

Sean Barretts narration as always is the perfect voice for Nesbo's anti-heros


How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Time differential between the deaths in the apartment not being considered seriously by the police was a weak link in the plot.


Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes excellent as always.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

A slight smile at the end when the twist is revealed.


Any additional comments?

I read this whilst suffering withdrawal symptoms from finishing the last Harry Hole novel 'Phantom' Some of the extreme escapes require the reader to suspend belief but on the whole Another excellent effort from Nesbo and Barrett the perfect team!
