With Headhunters, Jo Nesbø has crafted a funny, dark, and twisted caper story worthy of Quentin Tarantino and the Coen brothers. FIRST TIME PUBLISHED IN THE U.S. NOW A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE FROM MAGNOLIA PICTURES.Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he’s a master of his profession.

3.5 stars rounded down. Too big a plot for the writing. Or perhaps it was the translation? But I don't think so.
Do Nesbo mam słabość. A mówiąc dokładniej do jego najbardziej znanego bohatera literackiego jakim jest Harry Hole. Dlatego też, mimo zakończenia serii nadal sięgam po inne teksty tegoż autora. "Łowcy głów" to druga taka pozycja po "Synie". I cóż mogę powiedzieć? Głowy ani innej części ciała raczej n...
