Jo Nesbø writes the Scandinavian detective series featuring Harry Hole. Now, HEADHUNTERS features a new protagonist, a Brit named Roger Brown, who is the star headhunter at an Oslo employment agency. However, Brown has another, more lucrative, occupation: He moonlights as an art thief. This enables him to maintain the lifestyle he needs to keep his beautiful wife happy. Hearing about a Rubens in the home of a job applicant, Brown begins planning for his biggest heist ever. Steve West narrates in somber tones, capturing the ironic, smart-alecky attitude Brown employs to comment on his life and sub-rosa career. West easily dispatches the Norwegian character and place names, which could prove difficult on the page, making this complex, well-plotted novel even better in audio.
