BASED ON THE CELEBRATED BBC NEWS INVESTIGATION 'gripping and bitingly cold... full of fine detail and outrage' - Sunday Times 'Gripping' - Evening Standard A true story of false memories. 'Over decades and decades in Iceland people have gone missing without anyone finding anything out. They just sort of disappear...' In 1974, 18-year-old Gudmundur disappears after a boozy night in a fishing town near Reykjavik. Eleven months later Geirfinnur, a quiet family man, goes missing from Keflavik harbour in the southwest of Iceland after being summoned by a mysterious phone call from home. Both men are eventually presumed dead, but their bodies are never found. This quiet island is in an uproar - two disappearances with no forensics, no leads, no clue what has happened. Soon, the vanishings set in motion an almost surreal series of events, a remarkable tale of corruption, forced confession, false memory and madness that stretches over 40 years. Based on author Simon Cox's celebrated BBC News investigation, The Reykjavik Confessionsis a chilling journey of discovery into a dark corner of Icelandic history, and a riveting true-crime thriller that will have you gripped until the very last page.… (més)

An interesting case, but it does not necessarily make for an interesting read. The book slumps in the middle with the repetitive confession, false or otherwise, of the suspects. It might have been interesting to have had a chapter on Iceland's police procedures today as compared with the mid-1970s. ( )
