'Headhunters': Noir from Norway worth a look, before the remake ✭✭✭
Swift, amoral and nicely unpredictable, a bloodier Norwegian variation on film noir from the '40s, the thriller"Headhunters"comes from a 2008 novel by Jo Nesbo. The film already has been optioned for an English-language remake. Its protagonist, a sharklike corporate headhunter of modest physical stature, is a Napoleonic complex Nordic-style.
