The last few years of the millennium marked a transformational period for the Icelandic underworld. What had been a relatively innocent playground for petty criminals and “hobby pushers” progressed into the organized and violent industry that prevails today.
BLACK’S GAME takes place during turbulent times, using as framework a handful of real events from the period; the Ecstasy revolution, two armed bank heists, a large scale insurance scam and the biggest drugbust in the country’s history. All these events shook Icelandic society profoundly, not least because of the high level of professionalism.
