Spuren des Bösen – Zauberberg

TV-Movie | DE/AUT 2013 | 90' | OV

Taciturn Viennese police psychologist and interrogation specialist Richard Brock travels to Lower Austria for his new case, when one of his former patient, a mentally stressed child murderer, is suspected of kidnapping the six year old daughter of a surgeon. In the picturesque village where he once worked at a psychiatric clinic Brock meets a balky local police force, a hostile next of kin and several inconsistencies. But then a former employee of his turns up and gives the case an unexpected twist. For their third Brock case director Andreas Prochaska and screenwriter Martin Ambrosch fortunately refuse to participate in any whodunnit guessing game, but rather concentrate on a precise and pitch-black psychological case study. With the help of the again outstanding Heino Ferch SPUREN DES BÖSEN once more transcends the usual TV crime fare, instead achieving a quiet, sensitive but all the more impressive narration of perpetrators, victims and the scars both of them keep in their lives.
