Vienna Blood is a thrilling new murder mystery series set in the first decade of the 1900s in Vienna from acclaimed screenwriter Steve Thompson (Sherlock, Deep State, Jericho) and based on the best-selling novels by Frank Tallis.
1900s Vienna: a hotbed of philosophy, science and art, where cultures and ideas are espoused in the city’s grand cafes and opera houses. Yet beneath the genteel glamour, nationalism and anti-Semitism are on the rise. Max Liebermann is a brilliant young English-born Jewish student of the controversial psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud. Eager to study actual criminal activity, he is paired with the skeptical Detective Inspector Oskar Rheinhardt, who is struggling to solve a series of particularly gruesome murders. Between Max’s extraordinary understanding of human behavior and deviance, and Oscar’s practical experience, the two become an unlikely detective duo, called on to solve Vienna’s most baffling cases.
