KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Before he became a policeman in Iceland's capital city and set his sights on the National Forensic Academy in Knoxville, Johann Eyvindsson had sampled several other careers.
As a boy, he'd worked in his father's auto shop during the school year, and during the summers, he worked on farms. He later joined the Iceland Coast Guard and, after six years, got out and became a welder and steel fabricator.
