Various chronicles of deception, intrigue and murder in and around frozen Minnesota. Yet all of these tales mysteriously lead back one way or another to Fargo, North Dakota.
There is Jewish symbolism throughout the first four episodes of season 1. Lester Nygaard's (Martin Freeman) house number is 613. The ransom note to Stavros (Oliver Platt) asks for an amount ending in 613 and when Gus (Colin Hanks) talks to Molly (Allison Tolman) after he has arrested Lorne (Billy Bob Thornton), he tells her that he was on "a 613 - a dead dog". According to Judaic authorities, there are 613 mitzvahs - or commandments - in the Torah. Of course, we also keep seeing the Mitzvah Tank, in front of Gus's apartment, at the gas station where Gus gets the 613 call.
When Mrs. Nygaard lifts her soup spoon, it's in her left hand; when she lowers it, it's moved to the right.
