Headhunters - Jo Nesbo
I read this book in just over a day as I sat on planes to-and-from South Dakota, and was thoroughly able to mentally escape the confines of my economy seat via this novel. Roger Brown is the titular headhunter who subsidizes the expense of his wife's art gallery by stealing art from his own clients. After a new client, Clas Greve, discloses that he owns a Ruben, Brown sees all of his own financial worries fading away. Unfortunately, as he calls his wife from Greve's home as he is stealing the painting, he hears his wife's distinct ringtone in the next room. The conspiracy builds from this point, and Greve's military past comes into play as he tracks Brown's escape. This was a fun book, a great mystery, and as this is the second book I've loved by this author, I am looking forward to jumping into the next.
