Heahdunters movie Jo NesboThe readers of Empire magazine – the world’s biggest movie magazine – bestowed major prizes on the best of the best at the Jameson Empire Awards, held at the weekend in London’s Grosvenor House hotel. 

The Norwegian movie “Headhunters” – based upon Jo Nesbø’s novel  – won the prize for Best Thriller in competition with “Argo,” “Skyfall”, “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Raid”.

Plot: Norwegian Roger Brown (Hennie) works as a headhunter, scouting potential applicants for executive jobs, but also executes high- end art robberies. Danish Clas Greve (Coster-Waldau) has the qualifications for a post Brown need to fill and has just inherited a Rubens, so Brown targets him — only to discover Greve is a different type of headhunter.

Empire magazine Empire magazine wrote in the review:

Empire Awards 2013 logoA slick thriller which takes place in a moral vacuum. It’s fascinating rather than exciting, but makes for chilly thrills with two strong, charismatic lead performances, a great deal of style and amusingly repulsive, ruthless twists.
