Lillehammer

I'm watching and enjoying a series on Netflix at the moment called 'Lillehammer'. It's about an American mobster who gives information to the law about another mobster in exchange for a new identity in another country.

He chose Lillehammer in Norway because he'd watched the 1994 Winter Olympics held there and thought it looked a nice place.

A good tale all in all. It could be described as a 'black comedy'.

I watched the first series a few years ago and, IIRC, it's called "Lilyhammer" (for a couple of reasons) and it stars Steven Van Zandt, best known as a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band and widely known as Silvio Dante in "The Sopranos" .....

It was recommended to me by a lady much older than myself who had managed (somehow) not to hear the regularly used F-word .....

Highly enjoyable .....

Re: Lillehammer

Saw this series when it was first transmitted a few years back. IIRC it's a spin off from The Sopranos.
