FARGO, N.D. (AP) — A Swedish reality TV show that features 10 Americans competing in various cultural events is entering its fourth season and casting officials say something is missing.

They want someone from the Fargo area.

The show’s title translated to English means “Anything for Sweden.” Contestants are required to be of Swedish descent, but they cannot have visited the country.

Casting director Sofia Eng says the show is seeking applicants from the Red River Valley primarily because of its rich Swedish history. She also cites the continued popularity in Sweden of the 1996 movie “Fargo” as a factor.

One of the stars of the movie, Peter Stormare, is from Sweden. He is shown in one of the final scenes feeding the body of Steve Buscemi into a wood chipper.
