A bit about the show:

Lilyhammer was an orginial production for Netlflix (like upcoming House of Cards) and aired on BBC Four this winter. Following Frank Tagliano (The Sopranos’ Steven Van Zandt), a former New York mobster, who joins the witness protection programme (hence the app). Intrigued by the place after watching the Winter Olympics in 1994, he is relocated to Lillehammer in Norway. The transition from being a feared and respected gangster in New York, to becoming an unemployed immigrant in Norway is not simple. Frank soon discovers that in order to succeed in this rural Norwegian society, he must resort to his old ways.

    Name: Alice Panggabean

    Occupation: Junior Janitor at a Sumatran orangutan sanctuary

    Location: Sumatra
    Backstory: With an Indonesian grandfather you have decided to spend some time in Sumatra and where better to start than an orangutan sanctuary where you will attend to the needs of these great apes. Hopefully the humid tropical climes will deter most mobsters from hitting the jungle trails so you should remain safely under the radar.

    Occupation: Bike taxi driver

    Location: Berlin
    Backstory: Guten tag Berlin. You are from London, but you’ve moved to Berlin to be at the centre of Europe’s most budding creative scene. Rather than creating art, you’ll be creating traffic solutions as a bicycle taxi driver. Maybe wear a pollution mask – it’ll be good for your lungs and help you NOT to get recognised by mobsters on a German holiday.

The menu isn’t particularly varied but you’ll need to brush up on soups, stews and innovative use of maple syrup. Hopefully there’ll be little chance of the mafia finding you in the Arctic Circle.

    Backstory: You like to joke you were named after the trout fishing boat you were born on, sadly, it isn’t a joke.

Ever since, you’ve been farming trout and hope to raise a school of your own one day.
