Headhunters 

Directed by Morten Tyldum (Alliance)

A cracking Norwegian thriller---adapted from a Jo Nesbø novel---follows the very anglo-named Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie), a corporate headhunter with a sideline in art thievery. He’s married to Diana (Synnøve Macody Lund), who he feels unworthy of, and who he suspects of infidelity with art collector Clas (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau, Jamie Lannister from Game of Thrones). Expect murder, betrayal and more than a little bit of bloodletting, but what impresses is the playful and ornate filagree of the plot, continually twisting in unpredictable ways. The inevitable Hollywood remake is in development---best to be wowed by the original before they ruin it.
