Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he s a master of his profession. But one career simply can t support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife s fledgling art gallery.

2.0 "Łowcy głów" Jo Nesbo
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.
