I watched the third season in two sittings and am praying for a 4th!! I used to see Steve Van Zandt play regularly with the Springsteen Band in junior high and high school long ago. He is an awesome guitar player, his slide playing was fascinating to me as a young guitar player who discovered open tunings in 7tth grade. I liked him in the Sopranos, I thought his character really added to that shows’ color, but he makes this show. He has really thrown himself into this project. I discovered that some critics really panned Lilyhammer after the pilot and a couple of the first season shows. That it works so well for Americans and Norwegians, in spite of subtitles, is a testimony to it’s revolutionary format and charismatic screenwriting.

This is a great show. Steven Van Zandt ((who was an original member of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band) is a treasure. He is a gifted actor as well as a singer. I have seen him live with Bruce’s band back in the 90’s. They did a great job making him look the part. I am in love with his character, an only wish I had someone like him in my life. I love anything that has to do with the Mafia, and wish I lived in the era of gangsters and mob men. I am hoping there are many more seasons to come.
