Product Description

All eight episodes from the first series of the TV comedy drama, centering on a mafia mobster's attempts to start a new life in Lillehammer, Norway. After testifying against his old buddies in the mob, New York gangster Frank 'The Fixer' Tagliano (Steve Van Zandt) enters the FBI witness protection programme, choosing to be relocated to Lillehammer, Norway (he liked the look of it when he saw the 1994 Winter Olympics on TV). Now Norwegian-American immigrant Giovanni Henriksen, he quickly sets about making his new life as comfortable as he can by casually employing a mix of blackmail, extortion and threats to further his ambitions of opening his own bar, 'The Flamingo'. Unfortunately for Frank, however, his arrival in the town has not gone entirely unnoticed, as the local police soon begin to take an interest in his strangely empty background. The episodes are: 'Reality Check', 'The Flamingo', 'Guantanamo Blues', 'The Midwife', 'My Kind of Town', 'Pack Your Lederhosen', 'The Babysitter' and 'Trolls'.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of 2013's Highlights 28 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Stumbled on episode 1, series 1 by accident (OK, I was channel hopping, I admit it) and immediately got hooked. It's like the Sopranos come to Norway. It's clever, witty and definitely, at times, non-PC, gently highlighting Norway's 'right on' PC culture. Steve Van Zandt is outstanding managing to convey menace whilst at the same time being laugh out loud funny. The series is an absolute gem. I missed the last two episodes thanks to my wonderful Tivo box packing up so I bought the DVD. Series 2 is currently being screened but only on Netflix. If you want something different which is clever, funny and definitely original (when the Norwegians speak, they do so in Norwegian with subtitles in english), give Lilyhammer a go; you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars STOP! It's Lilyhammer time! 23 Dec 2013
By L. Tait
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, once again, BBCFour have come up trumps with screening this latest foreign comedy export! Hot on the heels of the hapless Icelandic petrol pump attendants in Naeturvaktin, comes Lilyhammer, which follows the fortunes of a Brooklyn hardman wanted by the mafia, and relocates to Lillehammer, a picturesque, quiet area of Norway. Adapting to the new cultural norms and his unorthodox way of solving trivial disputes provides the laughs. Spoiler alert! In the first episode, he kills a wolf! How's that for an opening gambit? And gets involved in some shady stuff as the series progresses! With such a fun protagonist, and the added bonus of the series being set in such a beautiful location, what's not to like? The end of season one left the door open for a second series, which has already been made. He's like the character Twoflower in Pratchett's discworld books, in that he boldly goes into dangerous situations and doesn't seem to care about his own safety, which baffles his enemies. Definitely worth a look!

5.0 out of 5 stars Enormous fun! 26 Sep 2012
By Helen
Format:DVD
BE WARY - SLIGHT SPOILERS RE THE FIRST 3 EPISODES....

I never watched Sopranos. Perhaps I should have done......

Inevitably I would watch this, another splendid BBC4 Scandi offering, I'll watch anything BBC4 put on in a foreign language, knowing it should be good. It started for me with the brilliant French series Spiral and just look what we've had since, wonderful..... The Beeb have gone from tentative once a week foreign drama to now 2 a week plus foreign movies again after such a dearth for years of anything other than UK or USA. I'd be happy enough if the whole of BBC4 was foreign drama if all of it can be of such a high standard.

Watching Lilyhammer on BBC4 currently and 3 episodes already. Wonderful fun, every moment. The American actor playing the main part, a gangster taking refuge well away from the USA, is so engaging and it's particularly hilarious that the local (loopy) police think he's a terrorist hiding out - totally mistaken identity. Mind you, they don't know his real background which might also excite them.

The location is due we are told to Frank remembering that the Olympics had been held in Lillehammer. How nice for those of us who also follow the Winter Olympics to see the famous town in this fun series.

Much of the fun is due to "Giovanni" (Frank) using what are I assume his normal "Sopranos" US gangster type strong arm methods, also bribery etc. He never does anything really bad, it's just ensuring the undesirables are aware he's tougher than they are and it's a good idea to do what he wants. His new girlfriend is delightful.

Should you be a reader of the British Radio Times, ignore the totally inexplicable, sour reviews of the first 2 episodes of this series by a certain "AG".

5.0 out of 5 stars Off the Wall, in a good way. 15 Jan 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A fine little series that tracks the adventures of an ex-mafia New Yorker in the calm quite of Lilyhammer, Norway. His new life amongst the politically correct people of that city causes a few issues that he solves mafia style. Light quite engaging, sometimes silly and funny. It's the sort of series you can warm to or not, I did warm to it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lilyhammer - mad black humour - but so droll 28 Dec 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We missed this series which was shown on TV, so I ordered the DVD. I think it was written as straight drama, but with strange, humorous parts which leave you wondering ...........and smiling (or laughing) ! It makes out the local Police are idiots, which I'm sure they are not, but they need to be that way to get the story going in the direction intended. The episodes are well-written, and the acting is good. We can't wait for Series 2 on DVD.
