"I find him in the freezer room of a fish processing plant, Ísfélag, where I watch cod and pollock come in off the boats. I have been warned that he is not forthcoming about the trawler accident – so I end up filling the silence with a stupid question. I ask him if he still travels by boat. 'I live on an island,' he says. 'I have to.' I suggest he could fly. He shakes his head. 'I have a fear of heights,' he says; 'don’t trust planes.' Both of us are smiling."
