In a nutshell: A black comedy masterpiece, this Emmy award-winner is based on the Coen brothers’ film of the same name. Arriving in a snowy town in Minnesota, the mysterious Lorne Malvo (Thornton) starts to have an effect on the locals, most notably the meek insurance salesman Lester Nygaard (Freeman), who is drawn into a series of crimes. You won’t believe how quickly things start to disintegrate.
