Good Banks, Bad Banks

Margrét Jónasdóttir, Jakob Halldórsson

The 2008 financial crisis hit Iceland hardest. All banks went bankrupt and the UK used its Anti-Terrorism Act against the country. People demanded answers. Confused MPs prevented sovereign default and launched investigations. Iceland has imprisoned some of those most responsible, and paid its debts, but has the real truth about what happened come out?
