Interestingly-formatted article from the BBC about a murder case in Iceland where it seems that false confessions were elicited. It seems that Gisli Gudjonsson, now well known for his work on interrogative suggestibility, was  police officer involved in the case. The story makes you very aware of the extreme circumstances that can lead individuals to make false confessions, and talks about practises that can lead to memory distrust.
