I never said I was going to read only Great or Important literature on the #worldreads challenge. One book per country, that's all I promised.
So Headhunters by Norway's own chart-topper Jo Nesbø was book number 2.
A fun little romp to be sure, and it had some depth. An amoral headhunter of the corporate variety (Corporatus headhunterus) living a lifestyle beyond his means gives us an inside view of his craft, and we learn that the most important quality for being CEO of a major corporation is height. The more you've got, the higher you'll go. An outsize ego and good taste in art doesn't hurt either.
