You say: "The troubling thing about his description of the killings in Murder in Brentwood is that he packs it full of the emotions you would expect in a crime of passion but he gets so many essential details wrong that you know that HE KNOWS it couldn’t have happened that way."
I would say that the most troubling thing in fuhrman describing those emotions is how skin deep they are. He doesn't understand feelings. He is as cold as a fish. He describes Simpson looking at himself in the mirror in the maid's bathroom: "He is looking into the face of a murderer". Nothing more, end of paragraph. He is not describing O.J.'s emotions, he is talking about himself. And he doesn't have any.
About the "essential details he got wrong". Could it be that he did that as an "insurance policy", to remove himself from what he actually knew about the murders. He was after all a detective "who wasn't there". Better be caught on the error side than the side of what actually happened.
