I read the book The Alienist a while back, really gripping stuff if rather graphic but that's what makes a great story, when your imagination runs riot.
Netflix are now showing season one of The Alienist and it's a belter. Set in 1896 it's the story of Lazlo Kreizler and his hunt for a brutal serial killer. Kreizler is an Alienist, what nowadays is called a psychologist. The plot twists and turns and not wanting to give too much away the it is a very dark and sometimes harrowing watch, strong stomachs are recommended too.

I’ve started watching this. Yes, quite graphic. The scene in the boy brothel raised an eyebrow, not much left to the imagination there.
