Eight adults lost their lives and ten children lost their parents in one of the most notorious murder cases in Iceland. They took place in the north of Iceland; Sjöundaá in Rauðasandur in 1802 and Illugastöðum in Vatnsnes in 1828. These cases have been the source of novels and plays ever since. In this book historians Jón Torfason and Már Jónsson unveil the court documents from the cases. This is the thirty third volume in the series about Icelandic folk culture.
