Mickey Grout is minor character in Fargo Season 2. He is a lieutenant of the Gerhardt Crime Syndicate.


Mickey Grout became an associate of the Gerhardt Crime Syndicate at some point. He eventually became an important lieutenant, and personally ran a large portion of their business, presumably in Minnesota.

Season 2

Upon hearing that Gerhardt patriarch Otto Gerhardt had suffered a stroke, Mickey sent the family a get well card. When he learned that the Kansas City Mafia was trying to buy out the organization, he talked with fellow lieutenants Roost Bolton and Joey Seymour.

"The Myth of Sisyphus"

Mickey travels to the Gerhardt ranch in Fargo, North Dakota to meet with the Floyd, Dodd, Bear, and the now paralyzed Otto Gerhardt, as well as Bolton and Seymour, to discuss the Kansas City situation. Claiming he "knows which side of the bread gets buttered," he declares his loyalty to the Gerhardts and pledges his support if it comes to war.

"Did You Do This? No, You Did It!"

During the war with Kansas City, Mickey is tracked down by one of their enforcers in the middle of a field. He is promptly shot in the head and killed.
