Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) seems to have it all, a top corporate headhunter with a beautiful wife, and all the lavish trappings of a successful life. Cocky and supremely arrogant, reputation and taking risks is everything to Brown. Brown also leads a double life, which is possibly even more lucrative. He meets his match in Clas Greve (Nikolaj Coster-Walda). Greve is cockier still, wealthier,

James Berardinelli
At a time when many mystery thrillers fall apart in the final fifteen minutes, Headhunters maintains its integrity. Full Review

Wall Street Journal
