The last catholic Icelandic Bishop of Hólar, Jón Arason, and his two sons, Ari and Björn were beheaded in 1550 Iceland following the rumble of the Reformation. Jón Arason was a remarkable and strong, uncompromising charachter and his legacy to this day is testament to that. And lest I forget, this book written by one of the best Icelandic authors today, is nothing short of fantastic.
