About: Count Oederland

A Public Prosecutor, in the course of investigating the apparently motiveless murder of a bank employee, suffers an aberration of the mind. Lost in thoughts of escape from duty and responsibility, the Prosecutor loses his identity; finding it in the legend of Count Oederland, a fairy tale character who chops down all those who stand in his way with an axe.

His private act of revolt becomes an infectious underground movement for freedom – but is this the freedom he dreamt of? This is American Psycho by way of V for Vendetta. Chilling, thrilling and terribly relevant.
