The all new "true crime" case in Fargo's latest chapter takes you back to 1979 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and Luverne, Minnesota. "Lou Solverson" (Patrick Wilson), a young State Police Officer recently back from Vietnam, investigates a case involving a local crime gang, a major mob syndicate and a small town beautician "Peggy Blumquist" (Kirsten Dunst) along with her husband "Ed" (Jesse Plemons), the local butcher's assistant. Helping Lou piece things together is his father-in-law, "Sheriff Hank Larsson" (Ted Danson). The investigation will lead them to a colorful cast of characters that includes "Karl Weathers" (Nick Offerman), the town lawyer of Luverne, Minnesota. A Korean War vet, Karl is a flowery drunk blessed with the gift of gab and the eloquence of a true con artist. Three-time Emmy winner Brad Garrett will play "Joe Bulo," the front man for the northern expansion of a Kansas City crime syndicate. The new face of corporate crime, Joe's bringing a Walmart mentality to small town America. His number two is "Mike Milligan" (Bokeem Woodbine). Part enforcer, part detective, Mike is always smiling - but the joke is usually on you. Bulo and his crew have their sights set on the Gerhardt crime family in Fargo, currently led by matriarch "Floyd Gerhardt" (Jean Smart). With her husband at death's door, Floyd takes over the family business, frustrating her eldest son, "Dodd Gerhardt" (Jeffrey Donovan). An impatient hothead with a cruel streak to match his ambitions, Dodd can't wait for both his parents to die so he can take over and expand their business from kingdom to empire. "Bear Gerhardt" (Angus Sampson) is the middle son, an intimidatingly large man who, although inarticulate, is the most decent of his clan. "Rye Gerhardt" (Kieran Culkin), the youngest of the Gerhardt clan, views himself as a big shot, but in reality he's just a small dog with a loud bark.

Fargo Year Two Review by Jennifer
1. Did you like it?
Yes, it was a nice chilled-out album to listen to while I worked.

2. Why?
First of all, a confession: I haven’t actually seen Fargo – either the original movie or the TV series – so I can’t talk about how well the music worked with the show.

But I did enjoy the soundtrack’s quirky mixture of funky 70’s tunes, folk and Americana, including a few great modern interpretations of old-timey classics that you might recognise from another awesome soundtrack, for the movie O Brother Where Art Thou.

3. “You would enjoy this album if…”
If you enjoyed the music from season 1 of True Detective, but wish it wasn’t quite so dark and brooding. This soundtrack is eclectic enough to be interesting, but fun and comfortable enough to be familiar and pleasant listening.

4. “This album made me think…”
I should listen to more Americana and alternative country music.

5. Overall rating?
3.5 stars. (Posted on 18/07/2016)
