Set in 2010, chapter three centers on Emmit, the “Parking Lot King of Minnesota,” and his younger brother Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor), a pot-bellied parole officer with a huge chip on his shoulder about the hand he’s been dealt – and he blames his brother. Their sibling rivalry follows a twisted path that begins with petty theft but soon leads to murder, mobsters and cut-throat, competitive bridge.
Following the death of their father, Ray and Emmit trade their inheritance; Emmit handing over his precious Corvette to Ray for a valuable stamp collection, a deal which sets this ensemble cast on a collision course. Ray and his parolee girlfriend, Nikki Swango, plot to steal the stamps back after blackmailing another parolee, Maurice LeFay into carrying out the task. Murder and fraud follow as steady chief of the local police department Gloria Burgle investigates the unexpected death of her stepfather Ennis Stussy. Meanwhile, Emmit and his business partner Sy Feltz seek to repay a two-year old loan on his parking lot before Emmit is approached by the conniving V.M. Varga who delivers bad news to him in an attempt to expand his power and influence in St. Cloud.
