** Which leads to FridgeLogic. There's no massive, searchable database of dental records. When unidentifiable bodies are found, their dental impressions are compared against likely candidates, usually locals reported missing. Each possibility's records have to be individually tracked down (probably with a subpoena or permission from next of kin) and examined by someone trained in dental forensics. There would be no reason for police in Montreal to suspect the corpses on their hands are (as far as anybody knows) still-living mobsters and hitmen from Chicago.
*** FridgeBrilliance: The only body that ''had'' to burned beyond recognition was the one that had been doctored (dentisted?) to be Frank's. Steps were obviously taken to ensure that Janni's body ''was'' identifiable, or maybe Jimmy deliberately left a wallet nearby for the cops to find, something that would give them an idea whose dental records to start checking.

* RetiredBadass: In the sequel, Jimmy is happy to settle down [[spoiler:with Jill]] in a house on the Mexican coast and be a househusband. He spends his days cleaning, cooking, and taking care of his chickens (all of whom have names). Oz is incredulous when he arrives, and can't believe what he sees (although the first thing he sees is Jimmy emptying a submachinegun clip in his direction). [[spoiler:The whole thing was a gambit by Jimmy and Cynthia to take all of Lazlo's money]].
