Lilyhammer (Netflix 2012, Steven Van Zandt, Henrik Mestad)

Former Mafia boss Frank Tagliano is placed in to the Federal Witness Protection Program after giving evidence against his main rival. He decides to start a new life in Lilyhammer, Norway.

The spelling of the series title alludes to Tagliano’s dog Lily, and the way that Frank and some other anglophones pronounce the town’s name.
