Not quite sure where to place this article; it's a fascinating and ultimately tragic tale of detective work and immigration.
Last winter two bodies were found in Norway and the Netherlands. They were wearing identical wetsuits. The police in three countries were involved in the case, but never managed to identify them. This is the story of who they were.
