Reference to another Cohen Bros (Ethan Coen/Joel Coen) film: Lester (Martin Freeman) hiding out in a cabin by the lake is similar to the hideout Carl and Gaear use in the original Fargo (1996) film. See more »


When Lester is running on the ice, it can be seen cracking behind him. In the next wide shot from overhead, there is no crack in the ice. See more »

Explosive closure to one of the greatest mini-series in recent history!
18 June 2014 | by deltaopSee all my reviews

When this series started, I was skeptical about how much it would achieve. Now, after 10 pitch-perfect episodes, I stand corrected. This series has done the impossible. It has crawled out of the shadow of the Fargo that gave birth to it and has carved its own identity. This is Hawley's Fargo.

Gripping and satisfying, the finale was brilliant throughout. Some part of me was expecting the appearance of a wood-chipper somewhere but Morton's Fork had more poetic ends in store though still with their fair shares of blood, gore and unrelenting suspense.

What I really liked about this series was the juxtaposition. One one hand the life is calm, unassuming, almost naive in the small town of Duluth and on the other there are dark forces prowling through the residents of this town who are oblivious to these forces until the very end.

The bloody game of chess between Malvo and Nygaard utilized these people as pawns and was very satisfying but I must add that the checkmate left a little to be desired.

All in all, I loved this series. The acting, writing, cinematography and, of course, the music were all top-notch. One of those series that I would gladly rewatch over and over again until I get bored, which I probably never will.
