CALGARY, Alta. – Residents here might have to look twice over the next six months if they think they witnessed a bank robbery, a police shootout or a cop car with Minnesota plates and the name “Bemidji” painted on the side squealing by.
It all comes with the territory as the upcoming TV miniseries “Fargo” completes filming in Calgary, said Kevin Brookwell, a spokesman for the Calgary Police Service.

"The movie is about the tension between comedy and tragedy, so it’s ‘cragedy,’" Hawley joked when asked about the tone. His Fargo will operate in a similar vein, though rather than following the events that lead up to a tragedy, it will trace the aftermath.
"You know, Joel and Ethan said something about polite society as often being the most violent," Hawley recalled. "I was really interested in this idea of taking a man like Lester Nygaard, Martin’s character, who is so squeezed by life, and, you know, pushing him to the point where he might snap."
Freeman’s Nygaard, a mild-mannered salesman, is only briefly exposed to Thornton’s Malvo, a mysterious drifter who Hawley says, “is someone who represents wilderness.” Yet it only takes that momentary interaction for an “infection” to take place in Nygaard’s heart, head, and soul. The series is in some ways about the fallout of that one - seemingly chance - encounter wherein Malvo opens a portal to all of Nygaard’s pent up rage.
Though the show opens with a bang, Hawley assures that they’re, “heading toward a collision, a big collision, at the end of the thing” as well."
