 About the Book 

In 1994, two no-nonsense thieves climbed a ladder, smashed through a window of Norways National Art Museum in Oslo, and cut a painting from the wall with wire cutters. The entire operation took only 50 seconds, but this crude heist made headlines throughout the world because the artwork was Edvard Munchs The Scream, one of the most valuable paintings on earth. If the theft of the masterpiece lacked complexity and drama, the recovery operation had all of the twists and intensity of a first-class thriller. Edward Dolnicks The Rescue Artist recounts the story of a sting operation that will leave you reeling.
