Out of Thin Air

Out of Thin Air

THE SENSATIONAL TRUE CRIME STORY THAT SHOOK ICELAND – COMING TO NETFLIX THIS YEAR.

It is the most shocking miscarriage of justice in European history. And now – in the most stunning true crime narrative you will read this year – OUT OF THIN AIR spotlights Iceland’s strangest ever murder case.

Iceland, 1974. In two separate incidents, two men vanished into thin air. Then, out of it, came 6 murder confessions and 6 convictions. Yet, in the decades that followed, these too would dissolve…

Fuelled by a personal obsession with the case, Ant Adeane traces its bizarre developments across five decades: exposing the mistakes that were made, the lives that were ruined, the confessions that were coerced, the questions that remain unanswered, and the injustices that remain unaddressed.

And it all began in January 1974, when a young man went to a nightclub . . .

Reviews

Reads like a great thriller. Incredibly interesting, even for someone from Iceland, where this mystery has been a part of the nation for decades
Ragnar Jonasson, bestselling author of the Dark Iceland crime series
Extraordinary . . . What the case says about the reliability of memory and the uncanny power of stories over our minds . . . for anyone who believes in justice, is the most disturbing part of a deeply disturbing and utterly compelling story.
Sunday Times
Riveting, cleverly structured . . . gripping.
