Here is a genius approach to a series where culture difference is going to clash. On the top of it it is a gangster from America who settle in Norway. This series is from Netflix their first series and well done at that. This could of been the Soprano’s spin off but it is not. There is some stuff a lit bit out of hand Frank being from New York can’t speak their language but understanding really fast learning there, but it is a TV show nobody is going to care. Right from the start you should know that Frank is going to resort to the old ways in order to succeed in Norway. There is a romance with the school teacher with light comedy in it. I love it myself? it is entertaining.
