The Fat and the Angry aka Ettor and Nollor starts with an explosion and part of a leg with the foot attached landing on the hood of a car.  Not long after this sequence a young man named Sebbe, involved in credit card fraud, is brought in by local police for questioning.  Also wanting a piece of Sebbe is Iterpol and the FBI who are willing to allow local officer Petra to question Sebbe until a warrant for his extradition comes through.

Soon Sebbe reveals the details of the credit card fraud scheme that includes a Stockholm banker who has invested his own money and his powerful father-in-law’ money in a land scheme that goes wrong. The banker owes money to a group of Russians and he needs money fast to pay them back.  He has his team at the bank where he works do some investigating and then learn about the credit card fraud scheme but instead of reporting the crime to the police, the banker decides to deal with it on his own.

The banker confronts a boy,  Farid who creates blank credit cards using a real person’s card information, that he and his siter Leilla sell for a profit. The banker tells the boy if he wants to avoid prison, he will cut the banker i  on their scheme.   But this arrangement does not stay this way for long and soon others want a piece of the action too.

As strong as the two-part mini series began, the last fifteen minutes did not meet the strength of the earlier scenes nor the very strong beginning.  Still, though The Fat and the Angry aka Ettor and Nollor was pretty good, but it could have been so much better.
