I am a great fan of Jo Nesbo, based on his Harry Hole series - I have and have read all available english editions, each of which I would give 4 or 5 stars.
I bought Headhunters expecting a comparable effort on the author's part, but was sorely disappointed. The only plus is that the story moves along quickly. IMO Nesbo quickly producted this novel and put little effort into it. The main character, Roger Brown, is completely narcissistic and unlikeable. The story is so improbable to be almost laughable - Brown, a "suit", outwits a trained military commando/killer and the police, or are portrayed, as little more than "Keystone Cops".
If one wants to read Jo Nesbo, try any of the Harry Hole series, but I wouldn't recommend this effort.
