Although Norwegian police are issued firearms they are not carried during the normal course of duty. Their firearms are stored, locked, in their patrol cars and can only be removed with the permission of someone in authority (the local police chief for example). They are not, as shown in the show, routinely carried. See more »
I will start with a sentence: it isn't usual American crime drama. Throughout the scenario you will be submerged in Scandinavian culture with their simplicity, beautiful landscapes and people who prefer to keep silent instead of talking things people around already know... and that sounds kinda Sicilian :)
Watched both first series and wow! ... waiting for the next one :)
And, yes - I meant "amusing" as it is full with original and interesting Norwegian characters and loaded with comedy elements.
Humm, many will say the name of the real town is Lillehammer, but remember that the name of his dog was Lily - and then the picture is complete.
If you are after blood, whores, drugs and uber violence - these TV series are not probably for you - it is all about being what? hey - watch it!
