Shocking book on sale for Father’s Day

Josef Fritzl book mistakenly stocked amongst Father’s Day gift ideas.


Possibly at the top of the list for what not to buy your dad on Sunday, shoppers browsing for the perfect gift were shocked to find a book about Josef Fritzl, the German father who imprisoned his daughter in his cellar, sitting next to the ‘Top 50 books for dad,’ shelf at two top retailer stores.


The inappropriate book, entitled ‘The Crimes Of Josef Fritzl,’ was immediately taken off the shelves with one store admitting a mistake at one of its branches and the second that there had been an error with its promotional stock.


All books have now been removed.
