‘Director Morten Tyldum’s juggernaut thriller, based on Norwegian author Jo Nesbo’s bestselling novel, stems from a simple but hugely satisfying idea: Serve up an eminently hissable central character, in this case parttime art thief and full-time corporate douchebag Roger (Aksel Hennie, who looks like the love child of Steve Buscemi and Rupert Grint). Then sit back and smile as he tangles with the wrong folks, and is subjected to the most humiliating indignities this smart, streamlined script can invent. 'The plot moves like a rocket, the despicable characters are marvellously sketched, and it’s always deliriously entertaining. Pure Joy.’ (Time Out London)
