Helgi Olafsson

The Final Years in Iceland, a Saga of Friendship and Lost Illusions

Icelandic chess Grandmaster Helgi Olafsson was 15 year old in 1972, when in a sensational match in his home country Bobby Fischer beat Boris Spassky for the world chess title. Breathlessly, Helgi had followed the match and attended a number of games in the playing hall in Reykjavik.

When thirty-three years later his childhood hero was arrested in Tokyo, Olafsson became one of the members of the "Committee to Free Bobby Fischer". In 2005 Fischer returned to Iceland, a country he was never to leave again until his death in January 2008, and Olafsson and Fischer became fast friends.

Bobby Fischer Comes Home tells the story of their friendship and paints an intimate portrait of the last years of the man who many see as the greatest chess player that ever lived.

Published 2012, softback, 143 pages.
