After Frank “The Fixer” Tagliano testifies against his Mafia boss in New York, he enters the Witness Protection Program and makes an unusual demand: he wants to be set up with a new life in the Norwegian small town Lillehammer – or as he calls it “Lilyhammer”. Thrust into a town that never met crime, Frank is confronted with a colorful cast of characters totally unlike the New York variety.
