screw these Icelandic police, they acted just like gestapo, they are monsters for keeping them in solitary for as long as they did, and the victims will likely have PTSD for the rest of their lives from this ordeal, what a horrible way to impose justice. Literally, these police officers go far beyond corrupt and incompetent, keeping a woman with an infant at home in solitary for almost a year. If I was in charge of Iceland's police i would put those officers in solitary for a year and force them to confess to a murder they did not commit.

I've been to Iceland and you could easily get lost or stuck somewhere, the towns aren't exactly close to each other and one road to Reykjavik you have to go over a really really tall mountain with very scary roads. 100% dont think any of them did it

I went to Reykjavik last year and its true that the people are absolutely the kindest I've ever met. Me and my sister lost our phones and when we went to the police station they were very unprofessional. Writing down our personal information on scrumpled up paper. It was crazy how incompetent they were
