Headhunters, directed by Morten Tyldum, won the 2012 Public Choice Awards at the Norwegian Amanda Awards and nominated for Best Director, Best Actor (Aksel Hennie), and Best Visual Effects at the 2012 Amanda Awards. Aksel Hennie (Max Manus: Man of War) plays Roger Brown, a powerful headhunter and art thief who lives a life of luxury and adultery. Roger’s wife, Diana Brown, played by Synnøve Macody Lund, represents the ideal trophy wife who wants to start a family but eventually discovers Roger’s infidelity. Roger’s personal and professional life collide when Diana introduces him to Clas Greve, played by Mikolaj Coster-Waldau (Black Hawk Down and Kingdom of Heaven), who owns a priceless painting, a painting Roger desperately desires. Soon Roger’s world crumbles as he discovers his wife is having an affair, someone is trying to kill him, and Clas Greve seems to know more about him than he should.
