Magnetisörens femte vinter / The Magnetist’s Fifth Winter (1964)
Is he an impostor, the peculiar magnetist Friedrich Meisner, or is he a man of marvelous gifts – or maybe both?
A German magnetist and doctor named Meisner arrives in Seefond in the autumn of 1793. In the town lives a doctor together with his blind daughter. The magnetist claims that he can cure blindness, and persuades the doctor to let him treat the girl. The treatment is successful and Meisner starts a clinic in the town, but all is not as it should be.
