Continuity 

During the elevator-kill scene, blood-spray would indicate that the backs of the victims' heads were now gone. However, at the moment the blonde is shot, the camera immediately switches to that of ceiling-view, just as the blonde slumps limply to the floor. But, as she does, it can be clearly seen that not a single drop of blood is on the back of her head.

When Lorne Malvo and his friend Bud Canton are drinking ice wine in the kitchen during the party, they both down their drinks. In subsequent shots their glasses are still partially full.

Incorrectly regarded as goofs 

When Agents Pepper and Budge are discovering the connection between Malvo's ambush in Fargo and Officer Solverson's phone messages to the FBI, Pepper takes the note from Budge and asks the other agent, "Where is Bemidji?" Given that Agents Pepper and Budge have likely been stationed in Fargo, North Dakota, for at least six months, one might assume that neither of them would need to ask where Bemidji, Minnesota, is located as it's only a two-hour drive due east. However, Bemidji only has a small population of 15,000 people, hardly an urban metropolis, and it has no federal law enforcement connections. The agents have been purposely stuck in the file room as punishment and were not given any assignments that would have permitted travel. It's conceivable that while they may have heard the name Bemidji, they did not know exactly where it was.

Plot holes 

It seems implausible that Lou Solverson had never seen the photos of Lorne Malvo in the year before he showed up in his coffee shop. Molly was obsessed with the case, and her diagram of the crimes at home and at her office both included the photos of him, including the clear headshot of him posing as preacher Frank Peterson. It seems very likely that Molly would have consulted with him on the case, especially considering that one of the reasons Gus apparently lost his job was over his supposed wrongful arrest of Frank Peterson aka Malvo.

Revealing mistakes 

When Lester and Malvo are in the elevator, supposedly in Las Vegas, the name of the hotel is visible in the elevator and it is Hotel Arts, which is in Calgary, where the series was filmed. While this could be explained as a fictional Las Vegas hotel of the same name, a sign states the elevator's weight capacity in kilograms instead of pounds.
