This offbeat crime-drama is so good that no one wants any spoilers to ruin the anticipation. It’s best to go in wide-eyed and naive to see how things unfold in the curious Minnesota town of Bemidji. So far, all the characters seem to be flourishing into their own, with Deputy Molly Solverson (Allison Tolman) growing in confidence, while pushed-over-the-edge Lester (Martin Freeman) is starting to feel like a new man. Billy Bob Thornton (above) might find it hard to top his role as the dangerous Lorne Malvo, who operates by his own set of rules with a bewitching arrogance. There are only two episodes before the critically acclaimed series wraps up, so savour every minute.
