Ed Blumquist (Jesse Plemons
) tells Lou Solverson (Patrick Wilson
) the story of Sisyphus, a Greek mythological figure condemned to push a boulder up a hill for eternity. This is not the first time the story of Sisyphus is referenced. The third episode of season 2 is titled Fargo: The Myth of Sisyphus
(2015) and in it Noreen, played by Emily Haine
(the girl behind the counter in the butcher shop), can be seen reading the book of the same name by Albert Camus
. Camus uses the story of Sisyphus in his book to explain the absurdity of life. See more
