We gave it a B

In 1902, Vienna’s Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt investigates a massacre in a brothel marked by a bloody swastika. Helping out, as in 2007’s A Death in Vienna, is Jewish psychiatrist Max Liebermann, who fends off a crazed swordsman by asking about his relationship with his mother.

Movie Pitch
CSI: Austria-Hungary, with Freud as Grissom.

Lowdown
Frank Tallis clubs us with weaponized psychoanalysis in Vienna Blood, but his fin de sièe Vienna is a treat. B
