After testifying against his old buddies in the mob, New York gangster Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tagliano (Steven Van Zandt) enters the FBI witness protection programme, choosing to be relocated to Lillehammer in Norway, claiming that he liked the look of it when he saw the 1994 Winter Olympics on TV.
Now as 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.
