First Look: An Early Excerpt From Jo Nesbø’s Headhunters

Weekly Lizard

Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbø has garnered fans across the world for his Harry Hole series, which debuted in Norway in 1997 and has recently come across the pond with the publication of The Snowman. His notoriety is sure to grow with the first U.S. publication of Headhunters, a standalone novel about a corporate headhunter turned art thief. The international bestseller is now a major motion picture with box office heat: its opening weekend take beat out the Swedish screen adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Headhunters hits shelves on September 6, but we’ve got an exclusive excerpt for you now.
