Storyline

Frank Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt) is a former New York mobster, who after testifying in a trial in the United States, joins the witness protection program. Intrigued by the place after watching the Winter Olympics in 1994, he is relocated to Lillehammer in Norway. The transition from being a feared and respected gangster in New York, to becoming an unemployed immigrant in Norway, is not simple. Frank soon discovers that in order to succeed in this rural Norwegian society, he must resort to his old ways. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

James Gandolfini and Edie Falco were supposed to do a cameo as their The Sopranos (1999) characters in the final episode of season 2, with Frank Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt) stumbling across them in a random cabin. Van Zandt was in talks with director David Chase to direct the scene, but plans ended with Gandolfini's sudden death in 2013. See more »

Goofs

Although Norwegian police are issued firearms they are not carried during the normal course of duty. Their firearms are stored, locked, in their patrol cars and can only be removed with the permission of someone in authority (the local police chief for example). They are not, as shown in the show, routinely carried. See more »

Lilyhammer and Netflix
18 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

When I first heard Netflix was making an original episode I was not at all impressed. I was like great, pile on crap to your already disgraced name. Well, I was wrong. Forgive me Netflix. I absolutely, love this new series. I put the show on this afternoon, and I have been glued to it all day. I am now on the 8th episode. Van Zandt (The Sopranos) is ruthlessly awesome. He may be a thug/wiseguy, and uses his bullish ways to get what he wants in this small, sheepish town of Norway, but you find yourself attached to his character. The townspeople, each have unique story to tell. They are all odd in a wonderful way.

The only thing I see a problem is.., subtitles. I like it, but may turn off some viewers. So, if your not a foreign film watcher, or like to read, you will hate it. No, this is not a foreign film...just an example. The entire film is spoken in Norweign with atiny bit of English spoken. So be warn. Who knows you might like it, and learn a new language. It could happen. Overall, I love Steven Van Zandt is in this series..A+ job.
