Narrator: And so, we come to perhaps the bloodiest chapter in the long and violent history of the Midwest region. And here, I'm speaking of Luverne, Minnesota, 1979 - commonly referred to by laypeople as the Massacre at Sioux Falls.

There's something special about 'The Castle' right from its opening; with Martin Freeman returning to narrate the tale in storybook style, it just seems to elevate everything.

And the stakes couldn't be any higher. Everyone and everything converges on a roadside flophouse for an epic shootout. I mean, it is take-no-prisoners, instant resolution. IN the end, an ad-hoc task force of cops and an organized crime family are decimated; chess board wiped clean.

And at their very best.
