The events depicted in this film took place in Minnesota in Out of respect for the dead, the rest has been told exactly as it occurred. For Noah Hawley — who wrote and produced both seasons of Fargo , as well as directing an episode and recording a song for another — he found it important to continue this facade, keeping the series in the same reality of the film by masquerading a fiction as fact. I always had a conceptual idea that there was a big book of true crime and each of these Fargo stories was a chapter…the idea that a show, even in the ninth hour, is trying to tell a story in the most interesting way, and get the audience to ask these questions. The show layers reality upon unreality, until it forces us into a corner: do we accept stories as lies, or as truths hidden in lies? Their crimes are countered by the efforts of Deputy Molly Salverson and Officer Gus Grimly, and the entire season operates as almost a meditative exploration of good and evil forces working in small, domestic situations.
Those are the words that have begun every episode of the television series, Fargo , for the past three seasons. The events that took place occurred in Minnesota and the Dakotas during , , and —or so the writers say. The names have been changed in deference to the living, but all else is presented just as it happened—out of respect for the dead. Of course, in a literal sense, not one word of that is so; and then again, in the figurative sense, every bit of it is. Because as much as the series writers wink at the true crime genre in which they create, they are also well aware that the conflicts, desires, failures, and triumphs they depict are the history of all time and all places.
