HBO Developing Crime Thriller 'Headhunters' Deadline

HBO is developing a project based on the 2008 book "Headhunters" by Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbø, reports Deadline.com.

Alexander Woo, a consulting producer on TNT's "Legends," will write and executive produce. HBO-based producer Carolyn Strauss will also executive produce for the Swedish production company Yellow Bird Entertainment, which owns the book's rights.

The project is the latest stemming from a Nesbø novel. NBC recently passed on a project called "I Am Victor," which was developed last season and went to pilot.
