Storyline

Martin Vinge, (35), former notorious journalist, now successful headhunter with a complicated personal life, is in all confidentiality contacted by 85 year-old N.F. Sieger, S.E.O. of Denmark's largest shipping company and oil empire. Sieger hires Martin to find an alternative heir to the firm instead of his son, Daniel Sieger, who for a long time has been destined to take the company into the next era. Martin starts coming up with suitable names for the position, but discovers that he has actually been entangled in a larger impenetrable power game aimed at deciding what is really going to happen to the company; a brutal power struggle that puts an intense pressure on Martin and his private life and relationships.

Easy watch but unspectacular
17 February 2021 | by julianrosser-440-787839See all my reviews

Quite enjoyable but the plot sags badly in places. Good cast and filming but wouldn't watch it again. Not in the same class as The Snowman the only other Nesbo based film I've seen
