Wanted: Icelandic Banker

Wanted: Icelandic Banker

Interpol wants Sigurdur Einarsson, former chairman of Iceland’s failed Kaupthing bank. Iceland has already arrested the bank’s former CEO, Hreidar Mar Sigurdsson.

Mr. Einarsson, accused of counterfeiting, forgery and fraud, is said to be in London. The real Interpol wanted notice is here. There’s no reward but, if you find the guy, grateful Icelandic authorities will probably treat you to a glass or two of Brennivin.

There’s more to come. The vengeful vikings of Iceland’s failed Glitnir Bank are suing the bank’s auditors for two billion dollars, claiming malpractice and negligence. You may have heard of the firm: PricewaterhouseCoopers.
