CURRENTLY READING: Headhunters by Jo Nesbo

First up, thanks to C.T. for inviting me to join The Mystery Bookshelf. Second, my first official post 🙂

My introduction to Jo Nesbo’s popular Harry Hole series started with The Redeemer which promptly led me to add the rest of the series to my TBR pile. I was impressed so much that I introduced others to him via gifts and they’ve all enjoyed them and subsequently purchased or read more. I think the “The Next Stieg Larsson” sticker on the books is slightly misleading, a much better comparison would be to Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch series as he doesn’t really share much with Larsson other than location and nationality.


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. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that’s been lost since World War II—and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft. But when he breaks into Greve’s apartment, he finds more than just the painting. And Clas Greve may turn out to be the worst thing that’s ever happened to Roger Brown.

Check back in a couple of weeks for a review.
