chapter in Nordic Genre Film: Small Nation Film Cultures in the Global Marketplace, eds Tommy Gustafsson and Pietari Kääpä. The chapter has three aims: First, it establishes the central generic traits of the
manhunt movie. Second, it sets up a theoretical framework of sociobiological and
ecological theories with hunting as a reference point. And, third, it examines the
Nordic version of the manhunt movie focusing on the themes of hunting, nature,
social standing, and civilization. I look at the Danish drama The Hunt (2012, Thomas
Vinterberg), the Norwegian thriller-heist-comedy Headhunters (2011, Morten
Tyldum), and the Swedish thrillers The Hunters (Jägarna, 1996) and False Trail
