Trivia

McMafia is a book by Misha Glenny about global crime written ten years ago. Many crimes/scams of the book have been included in the television series but it is the Russian chapters that formed the basis for the programme. Certain characters are based on real people and real events. The name McMafia refers to the way criminal syndicates would 'lend' the use of their name to smaller criminal gangs for a fee (such as a small Russian gang using the 'chechyn mafia' name to make intimidation and extortion easier because of the Chechyn mob's feared reputation) This is where the 'franchising' idea like that of McDonald's relates to 'McMafia'.

Reviewers miss the point
15 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

This is a great show, illustrating how crime has gone global, just like capitalism. One reviewer didn't like it because some villains were Russian. Did he even watch the show? There are criminals from Israel, India, Pakistan, Mexico and Czech Republic. Just because there are no Americans yet (they may yet show up), doesn't mean it's unfairly portraying Russians as criminals.

Did anyone else notice that this is based on a very good NON-fiction book by Misha Glenny, a reporter who does excellent work? Just because the producers made it into a drama doesn't take anything away from the veracity of the story.
