"I fell in love with her ... but when I analyzed it cool-headedly, to bring her into Iceland was probably the greatest political risk that I’ve ever taken. Why? First of all, my wife had died recently after a dramatic battle with leukemia. She was a very integral part of the presidency. Secondly, Dorrit didn’t speak a word of Icelandic, she had never been to Iceland, had no sense of Icelandic culture."
