Roger Brown (Aksel Hennie) lives a fantasy life of the early 21st-century variety. He's a successful headhunter for Fortune 500 inductees and lives in an opulent modern home. Though he's happily married to Diana, a statuesque art gallery owner, he spends his few spare moments with his enthusiastic mistress Lotte (Julie Ølgaard). The only problem is that Roger suffers from a crippling Napoleon complex.

He's so terrified of losing Diana that he continually lavishes her with absurdly extravagant gifts. He blows so much cash he's forced to moonlight, stealing rare artworks from his clientele. But this latest job uncovers something that could bring his frantically maintained lifestyle crashing down around him. Based on the Norwegian bestseller "Hodejegerne" by Jo Nesbø.
