Description

THE NEW GLOBAL PHENOMENON

Roger Brown has it all: clever and wealthy, he's at the very top of his game. And if his job as a headhunter ever gets dull, he has his sideline as an art thief to keep him busy.

At a gallery opening, his wife introduces him to Clas Greve. Not only is Greve the perfect candidate for a position that Brown is recruiting for; he is also in possession of one of the most sought-after paintings in modern art history.

Roger sees his chance to become rich beyond his wildest dreams, and starts planning his biggest theft ever. But soon, he runs into trouble - and it's not long before the hunter becomes the hunted...

From Publishers Weekly

08 August 2011 – Nesb takes a break from his Harry Hole detective series (The Snowman, etc.) with this stellar stand-alone caper. Roger Brown, a British ex-pat comfortably ensconced in Oslo, has developed a reputation as one of the best corporate headhunters in the business, but money problems lead him to use information he gleans from job applicants about valuable art they own. Brown arranges to steal their art works and replace them with clever fakes. When Clas Greve, the former CEO of a major European GPS company, lets slip that he accidentally discovered a long-lost Rubens painting in the apartment he inherited from his aunt, Brown anticipates making his biggest score. Of course, the heist doesn t go smoothly, and the dizzying reversals of fortune and situations that would be over-the-top in lesser hands make for a delightful roller-coaster ride. Carl Hiaasen and Elmore Leonard fans will be delighted.

Customer Reviews

A good read

Though the story line is simplistic in some ways it still is a good read and brings to life a world a I knew nothing about. I don't believe Roger would have done many of the things described in the book, but hey that's why it's called fiction

Juvenile in the extreme

If you can suspend your belief in the basic laws of physics and you can believe that Norwegian pathologists have IQ's in single digits and Norwegian police have even lower IQ's and you can believe that someone who has been totally immersed in something truly disgusting can open their eyes and actually see, then you might possibly find something interesting in this juvenile effort.
