Dr. Laszlo Kreizler from The Alienist

Dr. Lazslo Kreizler (played by Daniel Brühl) is the criminal psychologist at the center of The Alienist.  Kreizler provides expert testimony for the police force when required to determine whether a person should be remanded to prison or asylum, or be returned to their daily life.  Kreizler also operates an institute for abandoned children.  He enlists the help of his friend John Moore and the first female employee of the NYPD, Sara Howard, as he attempts to track down a serial killer.  Kreizler dresses in fine black Victorian suits and jackets, and he uses a cane.
