The second season of the comic crime caper is available to add to your Nordic collection.
Frank ‘The Fixer’ Tangliano (Steven Van Zandt) is the gangster who came into the cold. Now he has found his feet in the snow-covered Scandinavian streets as he delivers an explosive new chapter to the comedy-action drama set in the peaceful town of Lillehammer, Norway.
In the first season, Tangliano acclimatised himself to his new identity as Giovanni “Johnny” Henriksen in the Federal Witness Protection Program after testifying against Mafia boss Aldo Delucci (Thomas Grube). This didn’t stop him from launching a nightclub business and making a new family with Sigrid Haugli (Marian Saastad Ottesen). However, in the second season, his newfound harmonious lifestyle is disrupted by the arrival British criminal Duncan Hammer (Paul Kaye), which forces him back into his former way of life.
Zandt is best known for his role as mobster Silvio Dante in HBO’s The Sopranos (1999-2007) and member of Bruce Springsteen’s ‘E Street Band’, the latter in which he was personally welcomed into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ in 2014. Zandt has certainly made an international impact with fans of the culture clash series. He interjects a dark humour to his much loved character; proving “Johnny” cannot and will not be lost in translation.
