This compelling, relentless thriller is Jo Nesbo’s first standalone novel.

Roger Brown is a clever and charming self-made man who has worked hard to become the country’s top headhunter. Brown has a beautiful wife and an extravagant lifestyle – funded by his sideline as a successful art thief. When Clas Greve – who owns an extremely sought-after painting – appears on the scene, Roger sees the opportunity for one final heist. However, he soon starts to wonder who is really in control. Hunted by an expert tracker and on the police radar, is there anyone he can trust? Nesbo’s skilful plotting with plenty of twists will keep you guessing right up to the final page.
