Out of Thin Air

In 1976 six young people confessed to two violent murders, in a country where such crimes are almost unheard of. This was the biggest criminal investigation Iceland had ever seen, but no bodies were found, there were no apparent motives and no credible witnesses. So why did these young people confess?
