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'.

Very nice show. Something like breaking bad.
5 February 2018 | by marcojovanovicSee all my reviews

I like it a lot! Yes, it is focused on this russian family but, I don't see it as the usual thing against russians in the movies. The main character is the son of a big russian boss but they live in london and have ordinary life now... He is discovering his dark side during the show and he begins to like the power. Money drugs, power... I really really like it. Hope there will be a season 2.
