BASED ON THE CELEBRATED BBC NEWS INVESTIGATION


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 Confessions is 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.

Just ordered. Thanks
Ok, Im trying to keep this “on topic”.

OP, thanks for your post:-) And I genuinely mean that. So thank you.


“BASED ON THE CELEBRATED BBC NEWS INVESTIGATION.”


It is my opinion that in 1974 the BBC failed to investigate child abuse allegations amongst its own rank and file! And history has unfortunately shown this to be true. On a grand scale.


In fact, decades of abuse went undetected!


The BBC is truly an organisation of: “A true story of false memories”.


Their (the BBC) greatest piece of journalism to date, is the gender pay-gap, where they investigated and discovered women news readers on 400k a year were getting paid less than their male counter parts to read an Auto-Prompter.


Of course, with Iceland being the backdrop for all this intrigue, its worthy to note that the people of Iceland investigated and threw their criminal bankers in prison.


Whist in the UK, the BBC investigated and reported on the big bonuses our bankers would be getting for bringing the country to its knees.


Along with the 1-star rating from someone in America and the lack of credibility in the title “CELEBRATED 'BBC NEWS INVESTIGATION'” I am voting this cold.
Ok

Heat from me
