Jo Nesbo JackpotEveryone knows I loved Jo Nesbo’s Headhunters. It is one of those rare films that is darkly humorous, scary and intriguing all at the same time with cult written all over it before it was even out the gate.

They work at a factory in the middle of nowhere that makes plastic Christmas trees. And they bet on soccer... 

Jo Nesbo's Jackpot will be in Cinemas 10th August 2012
