His fiscal desperation having reached the point of no return, he hires two lumbering ex-cons, Carl Showalter and Gaear Grimsrud, to kidnap his wife. He'll then secure the ransom money from his wealthy father-in-law, pay off the goons and get out of debt. After abducting Jean Lundegaard, the duo head for a cabin in northern Minnesota. Along the way, they're stopped by a state trooper on a seemingly minor infraction, and the loquacious Carl attempts to talk his way out of the situation. Gaear simply pulls a gun and shoots the cop in the head. The fatality list that wintry night grows to include a man and his child who happen to pass by moments later. The following morning, local police chief Marge Gunderson wakes up with a triple homicide on her hands. Well into her second trimester, she pulls on her mukluks, drives to the crime scene and makes a first-class assessment of what transpired. It's not anything like the typical goings-on in Paul Bunyan country"--Variety review by Leonard Klady, February 12, 1996
