Roger is a corporate head-hunter with an expensive modernist house, a gorgeous trophy wife and a lifestyle straight out of the world of consumer dreams but all financed by a parallel life of crime involving thefts of fine art. However, when Roger steals a picture from a mysterious client he finds he has met his match and suddenly his life hangs by a thread. Headhunters is a taut Nordic thriller in the mould of ‘The Killing’ which takes an ironic look at the meaning of success in the modern world.
