Coming at us from Norway is Morten Tyldum’s Hodejegerne, an excellently executed thriller based on the novel by Jo Nesbø.
This one features Aksel Hennie as a corporate headhunter/art thief whose next target is Clas Greve (played by Danish actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, familiar now to American audiences thanks to HBO’s Game of Thrones), a former military man who can track his prey like a bloodhound on performance-enhancing steroids.
Hodejegerne is getting the English-language Hollywood remake thing done to it, so best to check the brilliant original first.
