Peter reports that Jo Nesbo’s Headhunters will be made into a film. I have mixed feelings about this – not that I don’t wish Nesbo every success, but that the book doesn’t feature Harry Hole, who is one of those characters who lives and breathes and changes interestingly with every book. Peter says,
Headhunters is a thriller which focuses on Roger Brown, a successful headhunter who finances his extravagant life by way of dangerous art thefts. Upon meeting the Dutchman Clas Greve, he starts planning his biggest heist ever, but soon runs into trouble.The book has been a great success in Scandinavia.”
He also predicts that this book is the first in a projected series. Sigh. Extravagant lifestyle, art thefts? I’d like to see Harry’s take on that.
