This third Law and Order series involves the criminal justice system from the criminal's point of view.
The character of Detective Robert Goren (Vincent D'Onofrio) is based on the popular fictional character of Sherlock Holmes, but instead of relying upon physical evidence like Holmes, Goren focuses on psychology to identify the perpetrators, whom he often draws into confessing or yielding condemning evidence. Goren also works with a John Watson like partner in Detective Alexandra Eames (Kathryn Erbe) and works for Inspector Lestrade type commanding officers Captain James Deakins (Jamey Sheridan) and Captain Danny Ross (Eric Bogosian) The character of Nicole Wallace (Olivia d'Abo) is a direct attempt to play on the part of Sherlock Holmes' female antagonist Irene Adler, also known as "The Woman". Wallace is employed as a "Professor of Literature" during her first appearance, which could be a parallel to Holmes' nemesis Professor Moriarty.
