In 1996, a manipulative drifter preys upon a small-town insurance salesman in the opener of this adaptation. Deputy Molly Solverson and Duluth police officer Gus Grimly team up to solve a series of murders they believe may be linked to Malvo and Nygaard. Fargo features a new “true crime” story and new characters, all entrenched in the humor, murder and “Minnesota nice” that made the film a classic.
