[Season 1] Just finished episode 1 and have a …

I am a first time viewer. I watched the movie and absolutely loved it.

While i understood Jerry lundegaard in the movie i couldn’t understand Lester nygaard in this show. Sorry, this isn’t a rant. But killing his wife seems way over the top. Was that supposed to be funny?

He is irritated/annoyed by his wife constantly telling him to grow up to be a man. Then Malvo tells him to stand up and fight the tide. Then suddenly he kills his wife in the next scene? I can’t understand his character here unlike the movie.

Someone help me understand it.

Thanks.

This is what you want
