Tommy is one of Lilyhammer's weakest episodes. It starts off with a failed hit on a character we don't have any reason to care about and mostly goes downhill from there. Despite some funny scenes involving Norway's obsession with Palestinian rights, the episode is bogged down by a bizarre subplot in which Torgeir sees the ghost of Duncan Hammer, and tries to kill himself, among other things. Meanwhile, Roar continues his meaningless escapes in Brazil, which seem to have been written merely so that the cast could go to Brazil and enjoy the beach. While Lilyhammer can often be a blisteringly funny critique on both Norwegian and American culture, this episode is far too odd to make much of an impact. The introduction of semi-supernatural element to the show (even if it is all in Torgeir's head) is particularly off-note and annoying.
