In Headhunters, Roger, a manipulative and shallow corporate headhunter, builds his own path to success. But soon his lies begin to haunt him with terrible consequences.

Based on Jo Nesbø’s bestselling novel, which was adapted into a film in 2011, this new version of Headhunters is set in 2002. Roger Brown is willing to do whatever it takes to move up the career ladder quickly.

Roger is a newly hired headhunter at Alfa, an exclusive executive recruitment agency in Oslo. When he meets Diana he will do anything to impress her. But wits and fortune smile on Roger until his lies and willingness to take dubious shortcuts lead him into a bloody plot involving an icy British assassin, truth-seeking postmen and Julie, an investigator with a taste for comfortable shoes and young men.

A careerist without equal, Roger must do everything he can to maintain his facade, his girlfriend and, not least, his own life.
